Analytical method for the precise and fast prediction of railway running times

The precise and fast prediction of running times is extremely important in railway operations and management. This paper is about the analytical calculation of railway running times. It contains a new method for the computation of the acceleration process, leading to a fast and compact simulation framework. The approach is compared to a common algorithm, the velocity micro-step Euler-method (VMSEM). Additionally, the accuracy of the new acceleration calculation method is also compared to empirical acceleration behavior of a standard commuter train in Germany.
