This paper presents a simulation model to study the robustness of timetables of DSB S-tog a/s, the city rail of Copenhagen. Dealing with rush hour scenarios only, the simulation model investigates the effects of disturbances on the S-tog network. Several timetables are analyzed with respect to robustness. Some of these are used in operation and some are generated for the purpose of investigating timetables with specific alternative characteristics.
