MODELLING OF RAIL NETWORKS: TOWARD A ROUTING/MAKEUP MODEL

The author proposes a hierarchical taxonomy of modeling issues and describes a class of models dealing with car routing and train makeup from the viewpoint of network flows and combinatorial optimization. The model proposed is compared with two previous rail network models and possibilities for algorithmic development are discussed.
