This paper proposes a novel approach for energy-efficient timetabling by adjusting the running time allocation of given timetables using train trajectory optimization. The approach first converts the arrival and departure times to time window constraints in order to relax the given timetable. Then a train trajectory optimization method is...

This paper proposes a new multi-objective periodic railway timetabling (MOPRT) problem with four objectives to be minimized: train journey time, timetable regularity deviation, timetable vulnerability and the number of overtakings. The aim is to find an efficient, regular and robust timetable that utilizes the infrastructure capacity as good as...

Passenger assignment models for major disruptions that require trains to be<br/>cancelled/short-turned in railway systems are rarely considered in literature, although these models could make a significant contribution to passenger-oriented disruption timetable design/rescheduling. This paper proposes a dynamic passenger assignment model, where...

Railway transportation provides sustainable, fast and safe transport. Its attractiveness is linked to a broad concept of service reliability: the capability to adhere to a timetable in the presence of delays perturbing traffic. To counter these phenomena, real-time rescheduling can be used, changing train orders and times, according to rules of...

In case of railway disruptions, traffic controllers are responsible for dealing with disrupted traffic and reduce the negative impact for the rest of the network. In case of a complete blockage when no train can use an entire track, a common practice is to short-turn trains. Trains approaching the blockage cannot proceed according to their...

Disruptions such as rolling stock breakdown, signal failures, and accidents are recurrent events during daily railway operation. Such events disrupt the deployment of resources and cause delay to passengers. Obtaining a reliable disruption length estimation can potentially reduce the negative impact caused by the disruption. Different factors...

Unexpected disruptions occur in the railways on a daily basis, which are<br/>typically handled manually by experienced trac controllers with the support of<br/>predened contingency plans. When several disruptions occur simultaneously, it is<br/>rather hard for trac controllers to make trac management decisions, because 1)<br/>the predened...

Railway systems occasionally get into a state of out-of-control, meaning that there is barely any train is running, even though the required resources (infrastructure, rolling stock and crew) are available. These situations can either be caused by large disruptions or unexpected propagation and accumulation of delays. Because of the large number...

During infrastructure maintenance possessions, commonly not all trains can operate, and the original timetable may have to be adjusted accordingly. To deliver the best service to passengers, operators have to coordinate adjustment measures dealing with multiple possessions at the network level. In this paper, we consider the Train Timetable...

This paper focuses on optimizing the robustness of a timetable with multiple train lines of different frequencies, where overtakings are also taken into account. An optimization model is considered of a cyclic railway timetable problem where dwell times and running times are variable and overtaking is allowed for relevant stations and each...

This paper investigates the challenges of railway traffic controllers in dealing with big disruptions and the kind of support tools that could help to improve their task in terms of performance, lead time and workload. The disruption handling process can be partitioned into three phases resembling a bathtub. For each phase the essential...

A growth of the railway transportation demand is forecasted in the next decades which needs an increase of network capacity. Where possible, infrastructure upgrading can release extra capacity, although in some cases this is not enough to satisfy the entire transportation demand unless optimised timetabling is performed. We propose a heuristic...

Currently railway traffic controllers use predefined solutions (contingency plans) to deal with a disruption. These plans are manually designed by expert traffic controllers and are specific to a certain location and timetable. With a slight change in the timetable or infrastructure, these plans might not be feasible and have to be updated....

Passenger-oriented rescheduling problems receive increasing attention. However, the passenger assignment models used for evaluating the rescheduling solutions are usually simplified by many assumptions. To estimate passenger inconvenience more accurately, this paper establishes a dynamic passenger assignment model during disruptions, in which...

The issue of disruptions in railway systems attracts a growing attention due to its severity to the society. Mitigation strategies are proposed from different perspectives to reduce the system vulnerability resulting by disruptions. However, due to financial limitations, it is not realistic to realize all strategies in the real world. Thus, it...

The energy consumption of trains is highly efficient due to the low friction between steel wheels and rails, although the efficiency is also influenced largely by the driving strategy applied and the scheduled running times in the timetable. Optimal energy-efficient driving strategies can reduce operating costs significantly and contribute to a...

This article tackles the real-world planning problem of railway operations. Improving the timetable planning process will result in more reliable product plans and a higher quality of service for passengers and freight operators. We focus on the microscopic models for computing accurate track blocking times for guaranteeing feasibility and...

Train dwell time is one of the most unpredictable components of railway operations, mainly because of the varying volumes of alighting and boarding passengers. However, for reliable estimations of train running times and route conflicts on main lines, it is necessary to obtain accurate estimations of dwell times at the intermediate stops on...
