With the ambition of policy makers to encourage a modal shift to rail, an increase in the demand for running trains can be expected. Capacity wise, this increase in demand could be facilitated by applying moving-block signalling. If railway traffic increases however, so does the difficulty of managing it. Rescheduling systems are currently being...

Railways are increasingly investing in their infrastructure to achieve sustainability objectives and meet expected growth in demand for rail transport services. Since building new physical infrastructure requires large-scale investments and long lead times, many infrastructure managers (IMs) are prioritizing upgrades to their signalling systems...

The railway timetable rescheduling problem is a challenging problem in both industry and academia. It is required to calculate a feasible and relatively good timetable within a limited time to reduce the negative impact of disturbances or disruptions. The railway timetable rescheduling problem is typically formulated as a mixed integer linear...

As the demand for the railways is expected to raise in the future, researchers are looking for ways to improve the railway capacity to increase the transport ability. Virtual coupling is a new solution based on the moving block technology, which further shortens train separation from absolute braking distance to relative braking distance. This...

Railways in Europe need to reduce CO<sub>2</sub> emissions and energy usage to contribute to sustainability. One of the measures that railway undertakings can apply with low investment cost and both high reductions in CO<sub>2</sub> emission and energy consumption, is energy-efficient train trajectory optimization. Another efficient measure is...

Employing regenerative braking in trains contributes to reducing the amount of energy used, especially when applied to commuter trains and to those used on very dense suburban networks. This paper presents a method to fine-tune the periodic timetable to improve the utilization of regenerative energy and to shave power peaks while maintaining...

Unexpected disruptions commonly occur in the railway network, causing delays, and extra cost for operators and inconvenience for passengers by missing their connection and facing overcrowded trains. This paper presents a passenger-centric approach for timetable rescheduling in case of disruption. We study a railway system in which passengers...

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...

The performance of railway operations depends highly on the quality of the railway timetable. In particular for dense railway networks it can be a challenge to obtain a stable robust conflict-free and energy-efficient timetable with acceptable infrastructure occupation and short travel times. This paper presents a performance-based railway...

Stability and robustness of a railway timetable are essential properties for punctual and reliable operations. Timetable performance evaluation is therefore an important aspect in the timetable design process. In particular, the stability and recoverability properties of a timetable with respect to daily process time variations must be well...

The Dutch railway network is operated close to capacity with the current safety system. This leaves little space for control by process operators by which a delayed train can cause severe delay propagation. The NS currently invest a large amount in punctuality improvement of the railway operations. This paper shows how the effect of delays can...
