Timetable performance and simulation

We offer solutions to improve rail timetables and resolve performance issues.

Using data and simulations we guide you in making decisions and trade-offs in timetable development. We have worked on various projects of varying sizes. Projects include the West Midlands Freight Interchange, the East Coast Mainline Recast, and East West Rail.

  • Are you creating a new timetable or making changes to an existing one?
  • Are you funding railway enhancements that lead to timetable adjustments?
  • Are you an operator looking to improve punctuality through better timetable design?

We understand the importance of trains running on time for passenger and freight users. We aim to work with you to ensure a high-performing timetable is developed.

Timetable Simulation

We are here to help you with the development of your timetable. We use modelling to make sure the system is optimised and considers different factors throughout the process. Our modelling helps reduce risks and validates the benefits of different timetable structures. We can also provide advice on performance and offer support for your projects. As a team situated within Network Rail’s Capacity Planning Directorate, we have the expertise to assist you.

Timetable Analysis

We provide analytical services to improve the understanding of timetable performance and readiness. We conduct short-term deep dives to check national timetable changes. Our toolkit will help at many stages throughout timetable design.
