Tracsis Rail Consultancy is a specialist in all matters relating to Operations Planning and Management.

Our services include:

Timetable Planning

Using a combination of skilled staff and software, Tracsis can plan timetables for anything from a single train path to a multi-year multi-stage train plan. We are adept at working with commercial and contractual specifications and one of our specialisms is the development and testing of timetables for franchise or concession bids.  We also offer experienced train planners on a contract basis, to assist in day-to-day operations or special projects.

Resource Planning

Tracsis has a long track record in delivering efficient and effective resource plans for rolling stock and train crew. Of course we primarily use our own software from the  TRACS product suite; by using software we can deliver outputs in a fraction of the time that would be required using traditional manual techniques. Use of software also allows for comprehensive reporting of statistics underpinning our resource plans.

Performance Modelling

Tracsis is a leading supplier of railway performance modelling, using tools such as RailSysTM, VISION and TRAIL to conduct assessments of infrastructure or timetable schemes as well as more detailed analytical assessments of running times, headways, junction margins and signalling scheme designs. We have a large team of specialist modellers with many years of experience and we are constantly developing new techniques and working with new tools. We also have a wide range of bespoke tools and data handling techniques which we use alongside modelling tools to deliver better, faster projects.

Performance Data Analysis

Tracsis uses data analysis techniques, supported by software tools, to conduct analysis of railway performance based on observed data. This includes network-wide performance analysis based on train running data against the timetable; more detailed analysis of train running at the signal-berth level or using GPS data through our DayOne tool or analysis based on observed data provided by our colleagues in the Traffic and Data Services Division.

Railway Signalling and Control Systems. Tracsis has a small, specialist team working in the field of railway signalling and control systems. Our principal specialism is in capturing and managing data associated with signalling scheme plans, and providing data preparation services for major signalling control system providers.
