Turn your model railway ideas into reality

SKU: KS-0028 Category:


Writer - The equivalent of Microsoft Word Railway Model design software with extensive features. Excellent picture tutorial to get you up and running quickly. You can create layouts of any scale or size. Includes libraries for many brands of track and turnouts. New components can be easily added with the built in editor. Testing of design by running trains including picking them up and moving them around with your pointeing device.

It supports any scale, has libraries of popular brands of turnouts and sectional track (plus you add your own easily), can automatically use spiral transition curves when joining track and has extensive on-line help and demonstrations. The software lets you manipulate track much like you would with actual flex-track to modify, extend and join tracks and turnouts. Additional features include tunnels, ‘post-it’ notes, on-screen ruler, parts list, 99 drawing layers, undo/redo commands, benchwork, ‘Print to BitMap’, elevations, train simulation and car inventory.


Using the railway designer can be a little tricky to start with, so we include the getting started picture tutorial. Once you get the hang of it, it is very versatile, and in our opinion better than the Hornby software that we have tested. We find the track plans look stylish and less like a game or toy (like  Hornby software does).
