OPTIMAL SCHEDULING OF TRAINS ON A SINGLE LINE TRACK

This paper describes the development and use of a model designed to optimize train schedules on single line rail corridors. The model has been developed with two major applications in mind, namely: as a decision support tool for train dispatchers to schedule trains in real time in an optimal way; and as a planning tool to evaluate the impact of timetable changes, as well as railroad infrastructure changes. The mathematical programming model described here schedules trains over a single line track.
