Changes in 3rd edition

The main changes in the 3rd edition of 2014 were made to keep track with the state of the art in signalling and train control technology. That's why the revision concentrates on the relevant Chapters 3 and 4. The total number of pages and illustration just slightly increased, since the intention of the revision was not to add more content but to keep the content up to date and to make it more relevant. Major changes are:

General changes

For the increased use of this textbook in university teaching and academic institutions, I replaced the 'Suggested Reading' in the appendix by a reference list with all sources now clearly referenced within the text. Five new references were added.

Changes in Chapter 3 Changes in Chapter 4 Changes in Chapter 6

The chapter was reorganised. There is now an introductory section of the purpose of scheduling. The section on clockface timetables was renamed in cyclic timetables and extended.

Changes in 2nd edition

The 2nd edition of 2009 is a thoroughgoing revise with 28 pages and 25 illustrations added. Major changes are:
