    Railway transportation is nowadays becoming one of the most preferred mode of transport due to its safety, capacity and reliability; the capital cost for the construction of the railway infrastructure is however very high and is characterized by high rigidity as the track layout is fixed; therefore there is need to optimally use the available infrastructure. Minor delays arising from a simple disruptions or even a single train failure can have massive impacts in terms of overall delays for subsequent trains using the track facility if not solved amicably. Disruptions can be attributed to power outages, mechanical failures, derailments, accidents or even environmental factors. In a case of multiple uncertain perturbations happening in a busy complex railway network, where there are many trains requesting to use the available track resources concurrently, there will be massive..
