CONTROL STRATEGIES FOR NON-SCHEDULED TRAFFIC IN A TIMETABLED SYSTEM
This paper has outlined a possible approach to strategic area control of untimetabled vehicles and a method of simulating its effects upon traffic flow in a timetabled railroad system. It is concluded that in order to provide a reasonable quality service, using demand scheduled traffic for wagon-load freight, the level of activity will be such that traditional movement control will not be adequate. Under these new operating conditions a semi-automated approach to decision making will be required. Economic constraints will impose an upper bound on the strategic complexity which may be adopted. Further investigation is being undertaken to evaluate the performance-cost characteristic of these types of control.
