Abstract

SIMON/RTT running time calculations M. Grimm Banverket, Swedish National Rail Administration Infrastructure Management Department, Sweden. Abstract The calculation of train running times is crucial for the process of a timetable construction. The Swedish National Rail Administration (Banverket) and the Swedish Rail Traffic Administration (Tagtrafikledningen) have started a project to export an infrastructure model from BIS to SIMON/RTT and TrainPlan, and to export running time calculations from SIMON/RTT to TrainPlan. The main task of the sub-project "Running time calculations" during the phase 1 from June 1999 to March 2000 was to: 1. develop a software prototype SIMON/RTT; 2. analyse the existing running time calculation model. The project is planning the second phase from April 2000 to October 2001. The sub-project's objective is to calculate running times for the entire network and a great number of different train configurations. These running times are to be ex
