The aim of this research was to improve the existing train operation and passenger flow simulator for detailed estimation of train movement on high frequency railway lines. For this purpose, a new method was introduced with calculates running time between stations depending on signal aspect, by simulating different signalling situations. A tool was added to calculate energy consumption for each estimated scenario. This paper explains the functions and features of the simulation system and offers an overview of the proposed method for calculating running time between stations. In addition, data was generated for a model high frequency line high, based on a hypothetical suburban commuter line to test to the calculation method.
