Abstract

The paper presents the model for analysis of investment options, and study report preparation for capacity increase of a single track railway line. The model calculations are based on a railway line time-table. Investment impacts are modelled for a range of options. The effect of each investment option can be expressed in tons or tons/investment value. Within the economic evaluation, the model can produce the output tables up to the internal rate of return and the sensitivity analysis tables for a pre-feasibility study. The tools and the final report text are linked, thus minimising the routine job and risk of errors. Introduction IRCIM - "Investment in Railway Capacity Increase Model" is a specific model, a set of interconnected tools, for the consultant support in pre- feasibility study
