THE FREQUENCY OF STOPS PURELY DUE TO TRAINS PASSING EACH OTHER, AS A CRITERION OF THE OPERATING QUALITY ON SINGLE-TRACK SECTIONS

DIE HAEUFIGKEIT REINER KREUZUNGSHALTE ALS MASSSTAB DER BETRIEBSQUALITAET AUF EINGLEISIGEN STRECKEN

If the determination of line capacity on single-track sections is based only on the criterion of the minimum mean headway of trains, and the necessary average tolerances in time, the resulting figures are high. However, as the number of trains meeting increases as the square of the number of trains, the number of stops at passing points would become so large that the operating quality would suffer. For this reason, the writer proposes the introduction of another criterion fixing a lower limit for intervals due to stops. The author applies this quality criterion to the calculation of the necessary time tolerances.
