A general model has been developed for rail transport efficiency that measures the capacity for mass transit and traffic volume per unit time. It can also be modified for the transport of passengers. The software is easy to use and can be used to deal with cross-cutting effects. It is an appropriate instrument for the capacity planning of applicant expenditure and operational scenarios to preliminarily determine the capacity effects and can identify situations for which thorough research with other approaches should be used. In the case of higher axle freight charges and higher freight speed, the use of the power model has shown important and inconsistent capacity effects otherwise unexplained.
