SCARM - Simple Computer Aided Railway Modeller

Post by Mixy »

Hello dear friends,

I want to introduce my freeware layout design program, called SCARM, which you can download and test from http://www.scarm.info/index_en.html. It has 4 TT-scale track libraries, intuitive and lightweight user interface, simplified 3D view and some other features.
I will appreciate any comments concerning SCARM here or by email – scarm at scarm dot info.
I was not sure where to post this topic, so I do it here - please excuse me if this is not the right thread.

Mixy,
from Bulgaria

SCARM is evolving and the current version is 0.9.24 - see more about it here: SCARM v. 0.9.24 Released.

There are many new and improved features since I presented it here - see more about them in the SCARM Blog.

If you need info about something that is not mentioned in the blog or documentation, post about it here or make a comment in the blog and I will try to help :)

A friend in the model railroading fraternity here in the US told me about SCARM recently. I loaded it and designed a nice 42"x 72" TT layout using Tillig track in about 15 minutes, once acclimated to the basics. The layout is instantly available in flat plan and 3D and you can toggle to get exact outer dimensions easily as well. One of the big advances is easy placement and location of flexible track. The software includes Tillig Advanced and Roadbed track, the older Zeuke standard track,and even has Tri Ang TT track available. I give it high marks all the way around.

Thank you, Holtlen48 :)

If you wish, send me your TT scale track plan and I may publish it in Model Train Layouts & Track Plans section of the site or in SCARM Railway Modelling Blog.

Not natively, but there is a chance. Read more about Running SCARM on Apple Mac.

@ Mixy. Pretty cool stuff! Thank you! I have to check it out some more in detail when I get more spare time. I really like it because it offers translation in other languages such as my native Roumanian and my adapted languages English and Spanish.
The program will come in handy for me since I need to build my layout some day. I never started building my layout (track laying) because of the fear of starting it and doing something wrong and then I will have to tear it down and start all over again. So far I have only the frame with the legs anf the wood boards. 3 sections 12 ' long X 4 ' wide. I think it is kind of short for me to run the ICE trains on it. Complete ICE 2 trains (TILLIG) like in real life consist of 14 cars total (12 cars and 2 ends) and I would like to have the train composition in straight line when run on the layout, just for few seconds before it will attack the curve again after coming out of one. So I'm thinking about another extension.

Without doing that, you won't learn what to do/not do. Also I found that by building and having to rebuild I'm starting to understand what I actually want.
