NEW CRITERIA FOR THE LAYOUT OF THE MODERN CENTRALIZED CONTROL POINTS OF BIG PASSENGER STATIONS

NUOVI CRITERI PER L'IMPOSTAZIONE DEI MODERNI APPARATI CENTRALI NELLE GRANDI STAZIONI VIAGGIATORI

Starting from an empirical analysis of plant characteristics and the levels of utilization of some big stations, an examination is made of the relationship between operational programming (timings, turns of rolling stock and means of traction, reception track allocation, shunting, interferences, etc.), and the planning of investments. An evaluation is made of further margins of possible exploitation of two big Italian stations as well as the probable improvements which can be achieved with the installation of modern centralized control points. Some (working hypotheses) are advanced on the priority to be given to investment. Interventions of the organizational type (rationalization of operating programs and work methods), and the connected investment into the (human factor) (professional training of personnel, analyses of experiences on other networks, etc.) can give important results in the short and medium term; in the longer term, great advantages can be obtained by means of the acquisition of new rolling stock and installation of modern centralized control points. One should not overlook infrastructural interventions, especially with regard to the layout of the lines at the entry of stations, the lines for the parking and cleaning of rolling stock, locomotive depots, etc.
