This set of methods resolves the complex problem of choosing the optimal solutions for increasing the transport capacity and the volume of traffic on the lines of a railway network in a given period of time. The aspects examined in the study are: (1) the change in the volume of traffic in the period under consideration; (2) the various solutions for increasing transport capacity and line density in stages; and (3) operating characteristics and existing technical equipment on the railway network lines. The aim of this set of methods is to determine: (1) the order, as well as the optimal time limits, in which measures for increasing transport capacity and line density should be carried out; (2) the characteristics of the optimal variables and near-optimal variables. The article deals with 4 complex measures for increasing transport capacity and line density: (1) changing the gross tonnage of trains; (2) the introduction of the automatic block system and a change in operating methods; (3) doubling the track partially along lines; and (4) doubling the track entirely along lines. The criterion for choosing a solution is based on the comparison between the investments required for carrying out the operations and the extent to which line capacity and the volume of traffic will be increased.
