Rolling stock schedules are made months prior to the date of execution. It is, however, rare that everything goes exactly to plan due to unforeseen disturbances. If the disturbances are small, then they may be absorbed by network buffer times. However, if the problems are more severe, changes must be made to the rolling stock schedule and associated depot plans. Here we propose a branch-and-price algorithm for rescheduling rolling stock units and recovering depot plans under
disruption. Preliminary results from DSB S-Train, a suburban railway network operator in Copenhagen, are presented.
