THE PROBLEM OF ORGANISING TWO-WAY SHUNTING IN MARSHALLING YARDS

ZUR FRAGE DER ORGANISATION DES PARALLELABLAUFS IN RANGIERBAHNHOEFEN

The productivity of marshalling yards with a single set of tracks and automated gravity shunting installations may -- according to theoretical studies -- be improved by two-way shunting. However the improvement in operations is limited by the problem of crossing traffic. A study shows that by means of pre-selection of the crossing traffic and corresponding constructional layout of the whole yard, two-way shunting can be practiced to increase productivity.
