To be a feasible base for simulation studies of Cologne's tram network, a valid vehicle schedule has to con-sider several requirements, like multiple vehicle depots and multiple types of vehicles. The local transport provider utilizes both low-floor and high-floor vehicles, with high-floor vehicles being qualified to serve both high-floor and low-floor platforms. Therefore mixed vehicle rotations are acceptable, but generally not desired. This paper presents a set of models which adhere to these requirements, while also considering sev-eral possible optimization goals, like minimum number of deployed vehicles, and minimum combined length of maintenance trips.
