Abstract: The comprehensive window maintenance setting program of the high-speed railway is the technical measure to address the conflict between trains running on and construction equipment maintenance. In the conditions of high speed and density traffic, the creation program of skylight has a restraining effect on the capacity of high-speed railway and the running of off-line trains and the sunset departure and sunrise arrival trains. Upon the comparison of different characteristics and strengths and weaknesses of skylights, this paper analysis operation plan of the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway and the characteristics passenger flow, then it calculates the capacity and the loss by different skylight programs. So consider opening sub-rectangular skylight recommendations.
