Chinese high-speed railway is in a boom and making train diagram with high-density trains to relieve capacity intense and improve operational efficiency has become the research focus. Different kinds of station intervals between adjacent trains are the basis for the train diagram. According to the situation in which trains with different speed run on the same line and the proportion of high-speed trains is much larger than that of middle-speed trains, this paper raises principles and methods to determine the minimum departure interval between trains with same speed at the relatively initial station. The minimum departure interval between trains with same speed at the relatively initial station is a necessary and sufficient condition for making train diagram since there is no overtaking between same-speed trains.
