SPECTRUM D2.2 - Capacity Management Report

Please be advised that SPECTRUM D2.2 (Capacity Management Report) is now available to download from the members area of the document download section of the project website.

The deliverable builds on the Logistics and Market Analysis conducted earlier in the project. The report discusses the chnages required by infrastructure managers (Trafikverket, TCDD and Network Rail) in order to accommodate a SPECTRUM concept. 

The report also details the results of a simulation modelling exercise to analyse and evaluate the behaviour of a SPECTRUM train along four routes of varying timetable pattern.

Also, by aiming to integrate freight and passenger services, the SPECTRUM concept introduces a new dimension to rail freight, requiring a change to current capacity management working practices. This will impact on the way in which infrastructure managers design timetables and operate trains whilst still adhering to EU regulations i.e. be fair and non discriminatory.
