Operation of Sunset-Departure and Sunrise-Arrival Trains on Dedicated Passenger Lines

The feasibility of operation of sunset-departure and sunrise-arrival trains on Dedicated Passenger Lines (DPL) is discussed. The operation condition of over line sunset-departure and sunrise-arrival passenger trains and the coordinative relations with the train working diagram window is studied. The adaptability for train operation of "two lines closed simultaneously" and "one line is under maintenance while the other is on use" is emphatically analyzed. The advantage of using "rectangular segmented window" on operation sunset-departure and sunrise-arrival passenger trains with "two lines closed simultaneously" mode is stated, meanwhile, the effect of the operation of the adjacent line caused by permanent way maintenance and catenary maintenance under "one line is under maintenance while the other is on use" mode is presented. The coordination method for sunset-departure and sunrise-arrival passenger trains running on one line while the other is under maintenance is proposed. By taking the operation mode on Beijing Railway Station, the operation of over line sunset-departure and sunrise-arrival passenger trains is introduced.
