Line /Section Capacity:
Number of (standardised) trains that can be run on a given section
This can be done only for a static, known traffic scenario
The number of trains that can be handled with
“reasonable” transit time (say, twice the bare
minimum transit time).
This accounts for the prevailing traffic mix
and congestion effects.
