The paper is focused on interface between passenger transport demand after utilization of individual trains influenced by current operational situation (delays, overtaking of trains etc.) and on aspects of capacity utilization of railway line. The research is inspired by an idea (based on UIC 406) to operate rush lines on higher level of capacity utilization due to possibility to cancel delayed trains and make the time schedule more stable in this way. Simulation model of distribution of passengers between trains according to current operational situation is modified and applied for this assessment. The main result is that the effectiveness of this measure (especially in passengers’ point of view) is depended not only on high capacity utilization of railway line, but also on time schedule and a complex of other operational conditions.
