3 Traffic volumes Freight Total amount of freight on rail is about 45 Mio tonnes / year Traffic is quite well distributed around the network Largest traffic volumes are in Eastern Finland (on some sections over 10 Mio tonnes / year) Russian import and transit traffic is about 30 % of the total volume (wood, oil, ore etc.) , Kosonen Tero, page 3

4 Traffic volumes Passenger long distance Total amount of long distance passenger trips is about 12 Mio / year The system and most of the traffic is Helsinki-based Northern mainline between Helsinki and Oulu has the largest volumes (about 5 Mio / year Helsinki Riihimäki) Western and eastern main lines have over 1 Mio passengers Traffic to Russia is about passengers / year , Kosonen Tero, page 4

7 Examples of finished studies Helsinki main station study 2004 Study was made for analyzing significant traffic increase planned for 2006 (from 967 trains/day to 1040 trains/day) Train amounts had increased in over 70 % would there be capacity left for additional increase? For initial data we had only preliminary future timetable structures, all the rostering and track usage had to be planned during the project Three different traffic scenarios were simulated Existing production timetable 2003 (for comparison) 2006 traffic planned with existing operation principles 2006 traffic planned with alternative operation principles This combination made possible: Analyzing the traffic increase without operation principle change Would there be advantages in changing them , Kosonen Tero, page 7

11 Examples of finished studies Helsinki Riihimäki-line capacity increase 2008 Riihimäki Objective of the study was to determine necessary infrastructure improvements in order to increase commuter traffic amount For initial data we had preliminary timetable structures and suggestions of the infrastructure improvements Rostering and track usage schedules for Riihimäki had to be planned during the project Helsinki main yard was left out from the model because of its complexity The simulation process was done in two different companies VR-Track and Ramboll Finland Update of an existing model Järvenpää Pasila Kerava Tikkurila Hyvinkää New model Jokela Vuosaari , Kosonen Tero, page 11 Helsinki

15 Examples of finished studies Helsinki Riihimäki-line capacity increase 2008 results With simulation we were able to define following infrastructure improvements By-pass sidings should be longer than first suggested Tikkurila station proved to be a bottleneck changes to layout should be made Also minor changes to other station layouts should be carried out Some additional improvements suggested before the simulation could be dropped out Certain improvement requests to OpenTrack were made during the project Ability to define track occupation observing intervals under way? DelEnd-file observation point should be changed done , Kosonen Tero, page 15

16 Experiences from OpenTrack Summary With OT we have been able to study and analyze wide variety of rail traffic problems starting from small travel time analysis ending to complex dead-end track yard studies After implementing OT our scope of simulation studies has widened quite much Simulation itself is still only a tool, the user has to know exactly what he/she is doing to get correct results Until now we have focused on double track studies considering the situation in Finland, single track studies are inevitable Future challenges Single track section modelling with heavy traffic? Construction works modelling with the machine movements? , Kosonen Tero, page 16
