© 2016 Single track segments are common in various railway networks, in particular in various supply chains. For such a segment, connecting two stations, the trains form two groups, depending on what station is the initial station for the journey between these two stations. Within a group the trains differ by their cost functions. It is assumed that the single track is sufficiently long so several trains can travel in the same direction simultaneously. The paper presents polynomial-time algorithms for different versions of this two-station train scheduling problem with a single railway track. The considered models differ from each other by their objective functions.
