Conditions for simultaneous formation of multigroup freight trains

Miloš Ivić, Milana Kosijer, Ivan Belošević

Abstract

The multigroup freight train formation is regarded as a challenging problem in railway transport. Multigroup trains are composed of a number of wagon groups that have to be arranged according to the order of intermediate stations. The analysis of technical and technological conditions that significantly influence the effects of simultaneous train formation methods is presented. The effects of various methods of significance for track capacity planning and train station service level analysis are considered. The research presented in the paper is expected to contribute to the process of planning measures to be taken prior to construction of train stations.
