More than 270 libraries
Start planning right away using the numerous supplied libraries featuring more than 6500 elements including the track systems for many popular model railroad brands and model scales, from T (1:450) and Z (1:220) up to IIm/G (1:22,5).
Additional libraries include scalable accessories like buildings, signals, trees & plants, electrical components and symbols for all scales. Our app also includes a comprehensive collection of slot car systems as well as components for many digital systems (DCC).
Organize your layout's content into layers in RailModeller Pro:
Up to 99 layers can be created to keep track of your tracks!
Hiding or locking layers supports you when working with complex layouts. Simply reorder layers using drag & drop, assign descriptive names, duplicate layers - it couldn't be easier.
You can optionally specify a default color for new elements or a default height assigned to newly inserted track elements for each individual layer.
Built-in assistants provide advanced functionality like inserting parallel tracks,
closing gaps with sectional tracks or a fitting piece of flex track.
Even tasks like creating a track helix with dozens of tracks only take a few clicks.
The assistants are always just one click or keyboard shortcut away in the toolbar of the app!
Additional functionality helps with optimizing the drawing canvas size, cleaning up the layout or auto-colorizing elements by article number, layer, vendor and more.
Grades and Levels
RailModeller Pro allows you to create complex model railroad layouts in three dimensions. Create grades up to a specified target point or simply by setting the start and end height for a specific track section, shift track sections up or down and use the layer defaults feature for automatically assigning default track heights to new tracks in a layer.
The optional 2.5D grade profile view of track elements provides an overview taking the hassle out of designing complex layouts with different height levels.
A part list is automatically maintained for every layout providing an overview of the tracks used and the overall costs. Element prices are editable in the part list and RailModeller Pro will maintain a price database making sure costs of elements once entered are applied across all your layouts.
Layout statistics provide a quick overview of the element types & libraries used.
Print in any scale
Layouts can be printed in arbitrary sizes starting from a plain overview on a single sheet of paper up to 1:1 scale printouts to provide a draft for building your model railroad empire.
The macOS feature to Print to PDF can be used to create PDF documents of arbitrary sizes, e.g. to be sent to your local print shop with specialized, large-scale printers.
An inventory of tracks can be maintained to display the number of tracks remaining in stock when working on a specific layout or to filter the Parts list to show only tracks that need to be purchased to build the layout.
Stocks can be imported from a CSV file as well as exported to CSV for e.g. editing the stock with external applications such as Numbers, OpenOffice or Excel.
Baseboards indicate the general shape of the layout to be built - without getting in the way with your planning or even covering the grid. The baseboard assistant gets you started with commonly used layout shapes like L- or U-shapes and rectangles:
Select a general shape, customize dimensions to fit your requirements, and start planning with just a few clicks.
Dedicated baseboard tools give your full control to further customize baseboards and the way they are displayed to your exact specifications.
Browse layouts created and shared by users of the app and share your own layouts allowing the user community to enjoy and discuss your design. You can 'like' layouts you find particularly nice and help other users of the app to discover great layouts.
With hundreds of layouts shared already the app makes it easy to discover popular designs or model scales, and automatically suggests related layouts for a track plan.
