TNV-Prepare: Analysis of Dutch railway operations based on train detection data Goverde, R.M.P., Hansen, LA. Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands Abstract TNV-Prepare is a tool that derives detailed information of event times associated to train services from data records of the Dutch train describer systems, the so- called TNV-systems. The data records contain signalling and interlocking information of an entire traffic control area. The TNV-Prepare output consists of TNV-tables per train line service and (sub)route. For each individual train event times (with a precision of a second) along the route are given, including train description steps, section entries and clearances, signals, and point switches. The TNV-tables give excellent analysis opportunities of railway operations that have not been possible before. 1 Introduction The availability of reliable and accurate data of railway operations gives import
