Rail transport systems are considered one of the most reliable transport systems for various reasons. Therefore, single-track railways are built and used in many regions of the world.
The preset study, motivated by practical examples, takes into consideration currently tested single-track railway models from task scheduling point of view. Several models and practical solutions to the problem of scheduling tasks on a single-track railway line have been presented. Moreover, it was shown that it can be indeed effective to use this type of line, taking into account its natural limitations.
From theoretical perspective, this approach leads to the analysis of numerous models and cases taking into account different criteria functions, and thus different ways of solving them out.
Carrying out such an analysis both from modeling real systems and suggesting appropriately effective algorithmic solutions point of view, gives tangible benefits to users of such railway lines. Consequently, the present paper collects results of recent research efforts in this area and presents its relevant results.
