Event Details

A presentation by David Langton, Timetable Strategy Manager, TransPennine Express

Time: 17:30 for Light Refreshments, 18:00 Start

One of the base elements in providing todays train services is a viable and robust timetable. Due to the stringent requirement for performance and capacity on today’s National Network, the need for accurate and compliant timetabling has never been greater.

An experienced train planner, David will talk to us about the principles of operational planning and timetabling, as this forms an integral part of any Train Operating Company’s (TOC) strategic planning structure.

Operational and timetable skills are necessary to provide an optimum service pattern that will enable maximum utilisation of the available rolling stock, and network capacity. David will give an insight of the principles of this process, together with some examples of this skill set, based on his many years of experience in the rail industry.
