We propose an algorithm for automatic train rescheduling with a train
rescheduling pattern language processing system.
Intended for restoration from
heavy train traffic disruption, our proposed algorithm has inherent abilities to
make effective train rescheduling plans.
While the previous algorithm tries to
make a train rescheduling plan in small steps, the proposed one surveys the train
timetable at first and applies “train rescheduling patterns” to prepare
Applying actual train schedule data, we have confirmed that
our algorithm works satisfactorily.
The algorithm is helpful for preparation of
adequate rescheduling plans for practical applications, especially for severe train
traffic disruption caused by an accident requiring more than an hour suspending

In Japan, since railways have a dominant share in urban transportation, the offer
of an efficient service for a large volume of passengers is required.

problems occur on railway lines.
In order to restore disrupted services, railways
