Rail Network

 

Simulated a complex rail network to understand issues and identify bottlenecks in the system upon introduction of new terminal. The system included 90+ trains operated by Tier 1 railroads, with varying schedules, priorities and characteristics.

  • Modeled different routes and traffic along those routes to measure congestion at key rail/road intersections.
  • Calculated the impact of a new container terminal on the regional rail network. The detailed rail model was used to make fact-based decisions relating to the planned terminal’s effect on the region’s traffic.
  • Provided recommendations on infrastructure changes needed to alleviate problems in parts of the network such as automated switches, additional tracks, and schedule adjustments.
  • Model results guided ongoing litigation regarding the matter and served as key means for stakeholder and community communication.
