Why are trains always delayed and how is a delay defined at all? In the talk "Can trains be on time", the influences and conditions in the occurrence of delays in the railway system will be discussed. The distribution of buffer times has an influence on the propagation of delays. Using a two-train model, the mechanisms of delay propagation are derived. Approaches to increase punctuality and capacity are shown.
