FREQUENCY OF TRAIN STOPS AT PASSING POINTS AS MEASURE OF THE OPERATING QUALITY OF SINGLE-TRACK LINES

DIE HAEUFIGKEIT REINER KREURUNGSHALTE ALS MASSTAB DER BETRIEBSQUALITAET AUF EINGLEISIGEN STRECKEN

If only the mean minimum train frequency and the mean interval between trains necessary for smooth operation are taken to determine the capacity of single-track lines, very high line capacities can be calculated. But since the number of passing stops increases as the square of the number of trains, these can become so frequent that a clear diminution in operating quality would result. The Author therefore suggests a further criterion, which limits downward the distances between the passing stops, and in the article seeks to apply this criterion to the measurement of train intervals.
