Software Reviews and Criticism

    Best Bang for the Price

    For years I used RR-Track to design several layouts in HO and O Scale. Got to be very well versed in all of its features and options. Got rid of my PC’s and bought a Windows. Great move but RR_Track does not offer a Windows version of there software. Sniffed around on the web and tried a few compeditors. Tried to balance price and features. Came across RailModeller, tried the FREE version and figured it was worth the price so I bought the PRO version. Took a few hours to learn some of the features but I bacame very comfortable with it and am enjoying the process of designing a new 11’ x 22’ HO layout for my basement. Right now the main enhancement that I would like to see would be an expanded library to include maybe 10-15% of the buildings that Walthers offers. The current offerings in RailModeller is very limited. I would recommend this software to EVERY Windows user on the planet.

    Excellant Software

    Building my layout with no diagram other than what was in my head, I didn’t like it when all the track was laid down and trains were running. Track and cork were glued down and unsalvageable. Ripped up and threw away 3/4 of it. Spent the next 2 month utilizing this great piece of software designing my new layout. I have tried others and wasn’t impressed as I am with RailModeller Pro and the learning curve wasn’t that bad. Started building the layout per drawing and toward the end didn’t thing it was going to fit. Boy was I wrong!!! Worked out perfect per the drawing. Only problem I have and I know it is me is understanding how to do elevations, it was frustrating at times. The author of the software responds quickly given the time difference and is highly helpful. I fully without a doubt recommend RailModeller Pro!!!

    Almost as much fun as working on my layout.

    Seller is very responsive to questions and ideas. Upgrades and improvements come about every month or so, which is pretty spectacular for any software. There is a very unique item in the help menu called “Vote for feature requests” that allows the programmers to focus on the features that us users want the most. I am a long time user and can say that they absolutely pay attention to us. I believe that because I spent so much time using Railmodeller that my layout makes the best use of the space I have. No more 5 tons of spaghetti in a 1 ton bowl. Adendum for current version: I am currently building the layout I designed with this fantastic software, and now it is helping me design my streets and towns as well. Very happy with this software.

    More of a graphics toy than a real layout design program

    I’ve used this app for a couple of weeks and have gotten pretty familiar with most of its features. It’s not a bad application, but as a design tool, it is pretty poor. There is no way to output the contents of the layout in any other format than a .png file, which is totally useless for transferring to any other application. There is no ability to design the benchwork needed to support the layout. I can’t find any way to effectively use the results for anything than to draw conceptual pictures. The libraries are good for putting track together. But to spend as much time as it takes to design any significant layout and then not have any means of exporting that design to some meaningful format is pretty much a waste of time.

    So many features!!!

    I would rate this 5/5 but it has SO many features that it takes quite a while to learn how to use them all properly and in turn how to really design robust layouts. But, there are tons of really good docs and tutorials built in that will walk you through what you want to do. So, if you are open to learning then you will find this program VERY useful. That said, the program is incredibly good and really helped me get my head around some pretty intircate layout ideas and rule out things that were geometircally impossible. The only notable downsides are that: -it seems to count flex track by segment, and not by the total # of linear inches. Not a big deal. jsut keep an eye on the paerts lsit it generates and "fact check" it before you go to the store. -as far as I can figure, the tunnel option only lets you put whole track segments into a tunnel and not start a tunnel mid-segment. -It tends to want to resize the whole layout if things get neer the edge even if thety don't go over it. Some of the best features are: - it won't let you bend a flex track in absurd or unachievable ways. - it is REALLY good at handling inclines and layers, once you fiogure out how to do it. - the track library is incrediblly robust, it seems to have all the parts from every maker - some of whom ive never even heard of. - it shows you clearly open joints and has a "magic tool" to close them.
