THE USE OF SIMULATION TO DETERMINE THE CAPACITY OF SINGLE-TRACK RAILWAY LINES

The assessment of various upgrading alternatives is presented here in terms of the capacity of the line. Several definitions of single-track line capacity are given; the capacity definition based on weighted delay computations and differentiated by train class is shown to be a promising approach. However, more research is needed into the ways of determining the weighting factors and delay costs of various classes of trains.
