  • Rail companies cut capacity as volume slides 20% Supply

    27/05/2020· Overall rail volume was down almost 21% year over year in week 20 (May 11 to May 17), according to UBS. "We note that auto plants have begun to reopen at reduced capacity and we expect to see some incremental lift in rail volumes in Week 21," UBS said in a research note last week.

  • Beyond Rail: The Transport Capacity Challenge an OnTrac

    14/09/2017· This considerably faster than either rail or air, which both face significant capacity challenges. Hyperloop would only be suitable for long journeys due the speeds achieved and the time taken to accelerate and decelerate the capsule. Given the early stage that such technology exists, it will face numerous engineering, technical and legislative challenges in the coming years. This makes its potential to alleviate capacity

  • Railway Track Capacity: Measuring and Managing

    systems engineering foundation toward railway capacity. From process improvement methods, Six Sigma and its Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control (DMAIC) cycle is chosen as the underlying framework of the thesis. Chapter 5 defines lean, micro and macro capacity utilisation based on the discrete nature of railway capacity. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is used to develop two novel

  • Performance or Capacity? Rail Engineer

    Irrespective of ATO and ETCS, performance and capacity can grow with incremental and innovative developments across the system, such as signalling better aligned to different trains’ braking potential, train braking distance reduction (and consistency) through better sanding for adhesion, conflicting train moves eliminated through infrastructure modifications and every improvement being hardwired into

  • High Speed Railway Capacity v13 conf

    Line capacity will depend on train performance, particularly braking and acceleration, length and how trains are controlled. How many trains can be run will

  • NTP 2019: Optimising the full potential of rail

    17/10/2019· Add to that the fact that the current movement of goods by rail is only 30% of total railway track capacity, with less than 5% of land freight being transported by rail — there is untapped potential for raising the use of rail to transport goods. Similarly, there is additional capacity on the existing KTM Komuter and intercity rail services which have the potential to be utilised. There is

  • The next steps for rail: challenges and opportunities

    03/03/2016· Despite a number of presentations and plethora of opinions, one clear message emerged from the next steps for the rail network in England event, held at the Royal Society. While the challenges of capacity and passenger satisfaction are not to be underestimated, the opportunities that a growing industry provides are to be embraced, for this is an unprecedented, and yes complex, time.

  • Potential railtrack capacity Levenmouth Rail Campaign

    13/01/2021· Potential railtrack capacity bottlenecks, especially related to the Forth Bridge, do present one cloud on an otherwise promising horizon for reconnecting Levenmouth to Scotland (and vice versa). The Greens Report notes "The Edinburgh-Perth and Dundee lines were built in the Victorian era and are too slow, with a long stretch of single-track route to Perth and sections with speeds as low as 30
