Abstract: Intercity Passenger Dedicated Line has considerable passenger flow volume in peak hours, and the carrying capacity of stations is seriously affected by the long detention time of turning-back trains. In order to meet maximum parallel routing problem and solve routing conflict, the paper abstracts track layout into a network with poly-source and poly-terminal and proposes graph and network method based on minimum-cost and maximum-flow to create a mathematical model and finally establishes next-case step algorithm. The practical simulation indicates that results are reasonable and this system is suitable for the calculation of railway station capacity.
