PREPARATION OF TRAIN SCHEDULES

ELABORATION ET TRACE DES HORAIRES

This article presents the way in which train schedules are prepared on the SNCF. At the request of a "transport planning manager" for a train path, timetable specialists determine first the journey time to be planned for each part of the train journey, then an accurate train schedule for that train, to include it later in the graph. Indications are then given on the way in which changes of locomotive or variations in tonnage are dealt with. Two paragraphs are devoted, respectively, to the present developments in the field of energy-saving running methods (ACE running) and to future computerised running presently under study (Athos study).
