Abstract

The paper studies the delay pattern of a rail line by system simulation with the data of Taiwan's south rail line. The running time of a train between two successive stations and the platform dwell time of a train at a station were defined as stochastic distributions, which can be calibrated by observed data. A stochastic model was developed to simulate the operations of the trains planed in the timetable, and the dispatching of the traffic control system. The primary result of the model is the spatial and temporary delay pattern of an operating rail network. 1. Introduction As described by Haile in 1995, risk management is a new field for the railway operation [4]. Similar to the level of service regulation used in U.K. [10], Taiwan government decided to implement the ninety- minute-delay as a new qual
