Article in the journal ETR

Philipp Scherer and Daniel Meurer (both engineers at quattron and VIA-Con) have published together with Dr.-Ing. Thorsten Büker (Managing Director of quattron and VIA-Con) the article “Process-oriented capacity studies for train formation facilities and industrial railways” in the May issue of Eisenbahntechnische Rundschau (

In their contribution, the authors develop a model that describes the performance and throughput of train formation systems and industrial railways with the help of the abstraction of the infrastructure and relevant parameters for train movements. In this study, the authors also carry out a capacity analysis, which is mainly based on real operating data.
