Trains service development and planning

When a new rail scheme is proposed, whether it is creating a completely new station or extending platforms, it is essential that the provision of train services, existing or new, is considered at an early stage and worked out in detail.

Because even small timetable changes can have a major impact on the network, passenger and freight operators will demand credible, detailed plans before even considering any amendments to services.

How we help

As part of your scheme development, our team of service planning, timetabling and performance specialists will work out the best ways of providing the required levels of service without introducing unacceptable delays elsewhere. Our expertise includes:

  • Strategic train service development, from end-to-end routes to entire authority areas.
  • Developing and incrementally evolving specific new train services.
  • Developing detailed timetables to serve new or expanded stations.
  • Detailed modelling of the performance impact of proposals on the existing railway.
  • Working directly with Network Rail and train operators' train service and performance teams.

Positioned for negotiation

Our team members are skilled at negotiating, from director level to train planners, not least because we recognise the central commercial importance of train service specifications.

The quality and dependability of our service and timetable proposals has helped SLC Rail to build up genuine credibility with the Department for Transport, Network Rail, train operators and freight operators.
