Condition based maintenance scheduling is a promising approach towards effective track possession management in railway transport. If the maintenance tasks arising from condition monitoring and inspection of railways are efficiently scheduled, high service quality and capacity would be assured. In this paper, the authors presents a short-term maintenance scheduling problem to efficiently use available train-free periods for restoration of potential failures such that availability and capacity are maximised. The formulated problem focuses on reducing the possession cost and penalty cost. It is modelled as a quadratically constrained mixed integer programming problem and solved using a branch and cut algorithm. A case study on the Swedish iron ore line is used to demonstrate the use of the scheduling approach for effective track possession management.
