THE EFFECT OF ASYMMETRIC FREIGHT TRAFFIC ON THE SELECTION OF OPTIMAL LOCOMOTIVE TRACTION ON LITHUANIAN RAILROAD

G. Vaičiūnas, L. P. Lingaitis

Abstract


The paper deals with the effect of asymmetric character of the Lithuanian railroad freight traffic in western and eastern directions on the selection of optimal locomotive traction. On the basis of analysis of data on freight turnover in 1999, it has been concluded that the rational solution is such an allocation of the locomotive power, which would give to the west-bound direction 2.7 times higher power than to the east-bound one.


Keywords
