A coordinated calculation of two processes – locomotives turnover and servicing – is described. Locomotives turnover is calculated by optimization system Labyrinth and servicing by dynamic transportation problem. Service programs integrate these processes. A model of coordinated arrival of locomotives at servicing stations is proposed. The calculation consists of three interrelated steps. The first step is the calculation of the optimal locomotive turnover without considering

Summary. A model to calculate the optimal work modes of train locomotives while serving train flows is proposed. The model is a further development of the dynamic transportation problem. Parameters of train movement and locomotive utilization are published. Both locomotive turnover and train schedules are produced. Useful utilization of locomotives increases from 70% to 90–95%. This allows the reduction of several thousands of train locomotives.
