Paper Title:
Wagon Hours Saved by Transferring Wagons without Sorting Operations at Technical Station
  Abstract

For the method calculating the benefits gotten by transferring the wagons at technical stations without sorting operations, two different calculating methods are brought forward at present. This paper firstly calculates the wagon hours consumed both when the basic scheme is applied and the scheme in which the trough wagon flows passing the technical station without shunting operations is applied, and then deduces a formula to calculate the wagon hours saved by through wagon flow passing technical station without sorting operations and analyzes deeply the affecting factors. As a result, it is found that the two calculating methods are the special cases of it. Because in the calculating process the influence of through wagon flow passing the station to the staying time at the station has been taken into account, the method mentioned above is more complete, and could provide a theoretical basis for the calculation.
