RAILWAY INDUSTRYTRAIN PLANNINGLEVEL 2 TRAINING

Module 9 - The TOCs and Network Rail


Train operator planning process

Train Operator Planning Process

Four Main Stages:

  • Business Specification

  • TOC Declaration

  • Draft Timetable

  • Final Timetable


Business specification

Business Specification

Will take the form (for example):

  • 1 train per hour between A & F calling at B & D.

  • 2 trains per hour between B & G calling at all stations.

  • Services for School Children to be provided between B & C, arriving at C at 08:10 +/- 5 minutes and departing from C at 16:15, or up to 10 minutes later


Toc declaration

TOC Declaration

  • Will be either in the form of a full detailed Timetable or a list of Amendments to the existing Timetable, or a combination of both.

  • Will include a set of Unit Balances.

  • The preparation requires a number of iterations, including matching train formations to anticipated passenger loadings and updated Revenue Forecasts.


Draft timetable

Draft Timetable

  • This is supplied by Network Rail by electronic transfer. Upon receipt, many processes commence. Some of the outputs are then re-input as part of an iterative process.

  • Where a need for change is identified, an appropriate Spot Bid is submitted to Network Rail.


Final timetable

Final Timetable

  • This is the result at the end of the Spot Bid Processes.

  • There is an upload (by Network Rail) to TSDB whence a series of Outputs are derived.

  • There are also a series of Outputs direct within the TOC organisation.


Inputs 1

Inputs (1)

  • Passenger loadings data

    Input to the Business Specification and updates at all stages.

  • Rules of the Plan / Rules of the Route

    Input to preparation of TOC Declaration.

  • Previous Timetable(s)

    Input to Business Specification and TOC Declaration


Inputs 2

Inputs (2)

  • Revenue Data

    Input to Business Specification Process.

  • Performance Data

    Input to Business Specification & TOC Declaration.

  • Costs (both Fixed and Variable)

    Input to Business Specification.


Inputs 3

Inputs (3)

  • PSR/SLC and Franchise Commitments (if any)

    Input to the Business Specification and Updates added at all Stages.

  • “Stakeholders” – eg User Groups, PTEs and Passenger Focus

    Input to the Business Specification.

  • Other TOC ’s Requirements (eg connections)

    Input to the Business Specification.


Inputs 4

Inputs (4)

  • Other TOC’s Trains using Common Infrastructure

    Input to TOC Declaration.

  • Traincrew Conditions of Service

    Input to Business Specification and the Preparation of the Final Timetable.

  • Fleet Size and Characteristics – eg fuel range

    Input to the Business Specification and Updates added at all Stages.


Inputs 5

Inputs (5)

  • Planned Changes to Infrastructure, Fleet & Personnel – eg new Traincrew Depot

    Input to the Business Specification.

  • Catering Provision & Reservations

    Input to the Business Specification and a full Update made during the Preparation of the Final Timetable.

Role of the train operator

Role of the Train Operator

Owns or leases trains, runs them over Network Rail’s track and signalling infrastructure.

Pays Network Rail for access to that infrastructure.


Role of network rail

Role of Network Rail

Owns track and signalling infrastructure over which trains run.

Manages timetable process ensuring equal opportunities and optimises allocation of line capacity.


Responsibilities of the train operator

Responsibilities of the Train Operator

  • Determines train specification

  • Defines traction and rolling stock

  • Connectional arrangements

  • Train length

  • Platforming

  • Resource plans e.g. loco, stock, guards, drivers

  • Servicing, cleaning, water for toilets, catering vehicles


Responsibilities of network rail

Responsibilities of Network Rail

  • Validates plans

  • Determines headways and margins

  • Confliction resolution

  • Optimises track capacity to ensure robust plan = good performance

  • Engineering and contingency allowances

  • Signalbox openings

  • Production of accurate data and WTT


Station layouts again

Station Layouts again!

  • Number of platforms

  • Type of platforms (e.g. through, bay)

  • Platform occupation (number of trains)

  • Length of platforms

  • Crossing movement within or outwith platform

  • Additional running lines e.g. avoiding/through

  • Commercial need e.g. convenient to public

  • Turn Round times

  • Station Dwell times
