Never heard of it or used it. Wiki link here... http://www.xtrkcad.org/Wikka/HomePage
Check out AnyRail which is really easy to use. You can get a free version for about 50 track sections for a trial. Then you have to pay a reasonable fee to use it.
Many people on this forum rate it.

Jean

I have used XtraCad for some of my plans. However, I am not certain how up to date the track library is as I have not used it for sometime. Two layouts back I also used it to simulate operations which were complex in around a multi- track port complex. There is a library of locomotives and rolling stock for some brands, mainly in US outline.

I've found SCARM (Small Computer Aided Railway Modelling) extremely easy to use, very flexible (dozens of types of track to choose from) and comprehensive. It works on Windows and the download is FREE. Just put SCARM into your web browser and use. Roger.
