Railway traffic experiences disturbances during operations that cause conflicts between train paths or even deadlock situations. Dispatchers need actions to restore feasibility and limit spreading of delays through the network. To help them in such a task, the dispatching support tool ROMA (Railway traffic Optimization by Means of Alternative graphs) has been implemented in a laboratory environment. This paper reports on enhancements to the underlying train dispatching model as well as to the solution algorithms studied in order to tackle the increased complexity of busy stations with multiple conflicting paths and high service frequencies. Advanced train reordering and rerouting techniques are compared with straightforward rules and the current approach in the Netherlands. Extensive computational studies based on accepted statistical distributions of train delays for Utrecht Central Station assess the effectiveness of the ROMA tool in terms of solution quality and computation time.
