China High-speed Railway currently operates a number of long-distance trains. However, it has a negative influence on dispatching and operation efficiency of EMU (Electric Multiple Unit) and crew. This paper aims at determining the combination of trains with various running distance. By designing crucial indicators that refer to the matching relation between trains and passengers, we formulate a closed-loop optimization procedure. It includes calculating the matching indicators, selecting to-be-adjusted trains, adjusting train distance, distributing passenger flow on trains, calculating the matching indicators again and giving feedback on adjusting train distance iteratively, until the efficiency of train operation plan is improved as expected. We apply the proposed approach taking Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway as an example. Compared with the original train operation scheme, the result shows that matching indicators for some trains are improved.
