RAILROAD COST PERFORMANCE MODEL

This paper is based on Appendix four of the Harvard University Transport Research Program Report "An Analysis of Investment Alternatives in the Colombian Transport System, 1968". The Railroad cost performance model is used to develop the operational costs and performance measures for a single track rail link. The objective of the model is to transform the operational demands, physical characteristics of different road-links and the rail equipment into operational costs and the performance measures for a link. The model is deterministic in that average values are used rather than random values for the model variables.
