When you created a timetable, did you work backwards? For instance, you have 35 trains available and I wanted to schedule the "A" line. Determine or use established running times, evaluate merge points (and add timing for merge points into the running time), based on the running times, mileage of the line, and consider the general inspection routine (say every 5,000 miles) calculate the number of trips one trainset could operate until you reach the 35. Then populate the timetable based on that headway (if it has changed based on the new train amount)?

I also was curious, unlike buses, instead of Layover/Recovery, does trains need a similar but longer buffer between trips to recharge (I'm not referring to crew recovery time)?
