Timetabling Documents

International Timetabling Process Handbooks and Path Request Forms
RNE has published the following documents:
  • Handbooks on international timetabling processes for customers which, in general, are Railway Undertakings. These handbooks describe the processes involved in the co-ordination of the international timetable in all its design phases, from the planning of the annual timetable to ad-hoc path requests in the running timetable. These processes are applied by all RNE Members.
  • Path Coordination System (PCS, formerly PATHFINDER) process guidelines, which clearly define roles and responsibilities.
  • Path request form for international train path requests and studies which is accepted by all RNE Members.
