Chiltern Main Line

Analysis of operations and performance improvement study of the Chiltern Main Line

The Chiltern Main Line connects the two largest cities in the UK, London and Birmingham, and is heavily used for both end-to-end and local traffic. 
Together with its partner Rail Aspects, trenolab was asked by the operator Chiltern Railways to analyse the current operations and propose and evaluate the benefits of timetable tweaks and changes in the train dispatching rules in particular at Marylebone station.
