A new approach is presented in order to deal with disruptions in rail transport networks. A mathematical model which decides on the speed profile while considering passenger use is presented. The model decides on the optimal sequence of operating regimes and the switching points between them for a range of different circumstances and train types all while considering delays and passenger compensation policies applied by the train operator. Computational tests on realistic problem instances of the Spanish rail operator RENFE are reported. The proposed approach is able to find solutions with a very good balance between various managerial goals.
