Railroad cost performance model (Inglês)

This paper is one of a series of papers from the Transport Planning Models Study. The overall objective of the study is the continuing investigation of mathematical models developed for use in transport planning. The study will analyze existing transport models, revise and extend the models where practical, and develop new models where needed. An evaluation of the models will include their application in transport planning studies and a critical review of the methodology. This paper is based on Appendix 4 of the Harvard University Transport Research Program report "An Analysis of Investment Alternatives in the Colombian Transport System". The Harvard presentation has been amplified by including sample computer inputs and outputs, a listing of the computational equations, and a dictionary of terms. This paper is expository in nature; no attempt has been made to critically evaluate the model.
