German term or phrase: die Disposition des Zugsverkehres
Diese zentralen Stellen werden sowohl die Disposition des Zugsverkehres als auch das Stellen der Fahrstrassen vorzunehmen haben.

Die Kosten von dispositiven Maßnahmen können noch nicht einer Dispositions-entscheidung zu Grunde gelegt werden.

I understand Disposition (I think) and I understand that the Disponent is the person who does it, and its adjective is dispositive but can't find a suitable translation.

routing of the train traffic


Explanation:
Train Traffic - [ Diese Seite übersetzen ]
I guess disposition is planning in the sense of what where ... therefore my suggestion routing ...

Zugverkehr is train traffic

train scheduling


Explanation:
Try that one on for size. Disposition often refers to planning or scheduling [Scott-Sabic, Logistik-Wörterbuch]

Another alternative might be s.th. along the lines of
train service and traffic planning
or
railroad network traffic planning

See what works best within your context.

The trial project demonstrated that a "windows" concept can have a positive effect on the quality of life for the people who operate BNSF's trains. It gave them more predictable schedules. It taught us all that the concept can work for both employees and the railroad, without negative implications for railroad operations, train scheduling or crew availability.
www.bnsf.com/media/annrpt97/safeserv.html

The main objective for developing a train scheduling model (and optimisation/heuristic solution procedure) is to provide the train operator with a tool which helps him/her to perform the train dispatching function. The model is not designed to replace the dispatcher.
