In this paper, we present Petri Net models for the tactical scheduling of railroad operations. The notion of schedule feasibility is explained; notions of various kinds of rail operations - meeting, overtaking, following, and double-track section operations - are briefly reviewed; then the corresponding Petri Net models are constructed and fully discussed. Topics on how to use these models to analyze the schedule feasibility are also covered.
