TrainPlayer Software brings model railroading out of the basement and onto your screen!

If you design, build, or operate a model railroad -- or you ever thought about doing so -- or you just like to run trains -- then you're in the right place!  TrainPlayer offers thousands of great layouts you can run, simple but precise tools so you can design and build your own, and an integrated system for operations.  Running trains couldn't be easier -- our software is fully granddad-approved, designed for people who like trains more than computers.

Try the free demo, see for yourself.  For an overview, see Our Products below.

 
What's New

Sept 2014: Release of Version 6.0!

A long time coming!  Well over a year of development work delivers new features including a great package called Advanced Scripting, which gives you everything you need to automate your layout and drive it by computer!  Set up a self-running demo, program the solution to a switching puzzle, automate your daily operations -- great new challenge for the do-it-yourselfer.

For more info about scripting, see the 6.0 Scripting Page.  Here's a glimpse -- click to enlarge:

The new version comes with a generous set of scripted layouts and examples, including famous switching puzzles like John Allen's Timesaver, cleverly scripted to challenge you and keep score. 

 

Another big advance in 6.0 is the introduction of 50-pixel cars -- great new sets of high-detail American and British cars and locomotives, with top-quality freight images to match.  6.0 comes with many new features for scaling and viewing trains at their sharpest.

For the full scoop, see the 6.0 Features Page.
