Abstract
In this paper, a mathematical programming-based model is presented for evaluating the impact that proposals for infrastructure improvement and capacity expansion can have on a mixed railway network, mainly oriented to increase freight transportation. In this model, the authors have considered extensions of elements of an existent mixed railway network, jointly with actions on the network with relative smaller cost, such as the inclusion of new sidings or new gauges in several rail segments, expa...
