Abstract: In this paper, we consider a train traffic management problem. Our aim is to find an optimal schedule for a train traffic network where time duration uncertainties are considered. This problem was intensively studied with mixed integer linear models where trains moving duration are deterministic. In this paper, a new formulation of the problem as a classical one with scenario-based stochastic programming taking expected values as objective functions is presented. Then, new criterion is proposed to quantify scheduling robustness in the face of uncertainty. Besides, a novel control policy is elaborated to find quickly, a feasible train schedule when disruption or unexpected event occurs during scheduling execution.

Keywords: Train Traffic Management, Scheduling, Control Strategy, Uncertainties, Disruptions.
