Abstract: When creating a railway timetable, a sub-problem that occurs for every station is the Train Platforming Problem (TPP). With our tool called Leopard, we show that we are able to automatically and quickly solve the TPP and create the platform and route plan for each of the 553 stations in Belgium, for all trains. Leopard also evaluates the plan created by human planners, if it already exists. For both the human and the Leopard created plan, we produce graphical images that are easily interpreted and compared by humans. As such Leopard both evaluates and improves train platforming plans.
