In this paper, we propose a model framework for providing optimal driving strategies and related speed profiles which minimise the energy consumption of rail convoys. Previous models were extended and applied to evaluate the effects of different signalling systems upon rail operating costs. The proposed method was tested on a real rail network, the Cumana suburban railway (Italy). Keywords: signalling systems, energy consumption, rail operating costs.
