The timetable revision will rewrite everything after returning the conventional timetable to a blank sheet (= zero base) depending on the scale.Blank revision(Also called zero-based revision[2]) And, based on the conventional diamond, gradually modify and addInsertion type revisionIt is roughly divided into.

And so on. Also,Direct operationIn many cases, the timetable of the line to be connected is revised at the same time as the timetable of the line is revised.

In the place of making diamondsRailway operatorAs a result, the appearance of trains that have not been set in the past and the abolition of trains with low utilization rates may be announced, especially due to the completion of new vehicles that are important for business.Honor trainVehicle changes are often made on this day.[3]..Generally amendment dateFirst trainIt will be enforced fromnight TrainMay be operated on the revised schedule from the day before the revision.そうした場合を含め、日付をまたぐ列車についてはFor trains that cross dates, including such casesExtra trainIt is customary to operate as[4].

If the convenience is reduced due to the timetable revision, users may ridicule it as "timetable improvement".一部の鉄道事業者やバス事業者およびメディアSome rail and bus operators and media[1]But that's why we call it "revision" or "change" instead of "revision".[5]..However, there are many cases where the interests of the number of excellent trains and the change of stop stations do not match depending on the user.停車駅削減には削減対象駅の利用客や周辺施設などから反発が強いため、ダイヤ上の基幹となるSince there is strong opposition from passengers at stations targeted for reduction and surrounding facilities to reduce the number of stops, it will be the backbone of the timetable.Train typeThere are also examples of changing the number of stations to substantially reduce the number of stops.[6]..However, in recent years, some businesses have begun to use the word "revision" again because large-scale time changes themselves have become established with the word "timetable revision" regardless of the content.[7].

Procedure for timetable revision

When making a timetable revision, if it is a major revision, consideration may be started 2-3 years ago.Especially when there are major changes such as the opening of a new line, it will take a long time to consider.This is because the timetable affects how the equipment of vehicles and railroad tracks is used, so it is necessary to consider the outline.In addition, since diamonds are products for railway companies, they will be examined in connection with management strategies.

For more specific diamonds, the actual formulation work will begin about one year before the revision.Shinkansen,Long-distance trainThe plan of the train that becomes the skeleton is done in the center, and the regional transportationlocal trainThis is usually done by the branch office in charge of the area.To create the transportation demand for each routeTrack capacity,vehicle OfSpeed ​​typeAnd operational efficiency,CrewOperation etc. are taken into consideration.The required time is the speed for each point based on the vehicle performance and speed limit.Driving curveFrom (run curve)Standard operation timeAnd thereSpare timeIs added and decided.The procedure is to first make a rough diagram every hour, then every 1 minutes every few minutes, and finally make a second minute diagram every 10 seconds.路線によっては一分目ダイヤを使うこともあるDepending on the route, the first minute timetable may be used[8]..Honorable trains (compared to regular trains)Limited express-Express trainIn many cases, the driving time is prioritized.

In addition, it is necessary to allow some margin instead of using the full capacity of the track. EspeciallyTrack maintenanceIt is necessary to secure the time required to perform the work (this is called "maintenance interval"), and usually the maintenance interval is secured at night, but on major routes, night trains andfreight trainThe biggest problem is the balance with the driving.There are also routes where large-scale train suspensions are carried out during the daytime for refreshment work.In the case of trains that are crossed between companies, discussions will be held between companies. Since changes in one place affect the others, the departments in charge will communicate with each other many times to formulate details.

At the National Railways Revision Conference held during the JNR era, people from all over the country were gathered together for several weeks.Draft meetingAnd the plenary session was being held.これには、温泉旅館を借り切って長い時間を掛けて作業を行っていたため、「温泉会議」とも称されたThis was also called a "hot spring conference" because it took a long time to rent a hot spring inn and work on it.[9]But,JRSince the transition to, the blank schedule has not been revised all at once on a nationwide scale, so such a scene has disappeared.

When the details of the diamond are decided, it will be about 3 months before the revision of the diamond.Press releaseIs done.What will be announced at this time will be in time for the timetable to be finalized.

In actually implementing the revised timetable, new vehicles may be introduced or existing vehicles may be transferred.Plans for these deadheads are also made.新製車両を投入する時は、既存の車両と合わせるとWhen introducing a new vehicle, combine it with the existing vehicleDepotMay overflow, temporarily store elsewhere[10]Then, it may be replaced all at once according to the timetable revision.[11].

In addition,Private railway,subwayThere is not much problem in places where trains are completely out of service at night, such asTokaido Main Line,Tohoku Main LineIt is important that night trains and freight trains continue to run all nightMain lineIn such cases, the change at the time of timetable revision becomes a problem.このためにダイヤ改正前日または当日に一部の列車の時刻を変更したり、運休したりして対応するFor this reason, some trains will be changed or suspended on the day before or on the day of the timetable revision.[4]..This plan is called a transition plan.Also on the revision date, the stationTimetableIs being re-pasted, the formation is being reorganized at the depot, and work for revision is being carried out all night.In recent years, for the purpose of simplifying the work, when the revised timetable is finalized, the timetable posted at the station is gradually changed to the revised timetable, and until the revision date, it is on the revised timetable before the revision. Timetables are often posted on pasted paper.

After a while after executing the timetable revision, some inconveniences may appear only after the implementation.This can be a transfer connection problem or an operational problem such as the tendency for certain trains to be delayed.In order to solve these problems, fine time adjustments (corrections) may be made.
