Kurzfassung englisch:
This paper proposes a newly designed system for
baggage transfer, which utilises the Nexus Metro system in
Newcastle-Upon-Tyne by running a pendulum freight train
system between the Haymarket and Newcastle Airport to
carry travellers´ baggage. This system is capable of serving
all passengers departing from Newcastle Airport in a day,
with a capacity of 9750 bags across 26 freight train journeys.
Following the initial solution two more solutions were
designed with the aim of maximising the utilisation of the
metro tracks by saturating the system with freight trains on a
24-h system. All solutions have been replicated using models
designed and validated by event-based simulation using
SIMUL8, a simulation modelling software package.
