We propose to investigate the best compromise between the number of deadheading operations and the size of a locomotive fleet with respect to locomotive assignment. Deadheading is evaluated in terms of the number of deadheading locomotives, the deadheading mileage and the deadheading cost. Numerical results are presented on data sets of Canada Pacific Railway for different values of the locomotive size.
