TIPOVOY TEKHNOLOGICHESKYI PROTSESS RABOTY SORTIROVOCHNOI STANTSII

Soviet researchers have developed an operational model for existing classification yards. This book describes such activities as receiving and breaking up inbound trains, classifying cars, and making up outbound trains, as well as the handling of run-through trains and also cars for local destinations. Special procedures are given for organizing the work of a yard in winter conditions. Information is provided on the control and analysis of performance of the classification yard. Appendix 1 gives brief instructions for the implementation of the new procedures described in the model. Appendix 2 presents the methodology for effective coordination within the classification yard, as well as with adjoining track sections. Appendix 3 provides the methodology for specialized yard operations. Appendix 4 covers the procedures of yardmaster schedule management. Appendix 5 provides the method for calculating a standard in-yard car detention time. Appendix 6 describes the recommended mechanization and automation of yard activities. Appendix 7 sets forth the methodology for calculating unit costs of yard operations. Appendix 8 describes the recommended accounting procedures for a classification yard.
