You really have a problem making sense of this text; the expression you have posted here is quite clearly two separate terms, not necessarily associated. The second part I cannot make head or tail of; the first, however, I think is this.
Allocation of a track over which a train or possibly an engine "runs round" its train, or another train. Running round is only necessary when the train is not fitted with push-and-pull controls, or when these are inoperative due to a malfunction. It could also refer to a freight train reversing direction.
