SOLUTION OF A RAILROAD LOCOMOTIVE SCHEDULING PROBLEM

A method is described for finding a minimum cost set of schedules for railway locomotives to work a given set of trains. The times at which the trains start may be fixed or variable. A heuristic method, based on a linear programming model, is described. This gives good integer solutions to the problem.
