SINGLE TRACK LINE OPERATING MODEL

Computer program which calculates average transit time characteristics as a function of train density for a particular section of rail line - single track with sidings. These characteristics are used to established a cost forecast for a particular operation on a specified railroad plant. An economic program evaluates various modified operations on a number of modified plants to determine the most economical single track railroad expansion strategy. Given an operating philosophy on a single track railroad for a certain forecast period, the program determines the cash flow for that operation including the ownership cost of increasing congestion delays. This procedure is repeated for a number of changes to the railroad plant and/or operation philosophy and an economic program evaluates the results to establish the most economical railroad expansion strategy.
