Thank you very much for this brilliant program.

It is so easy to use, and I have spent many a happy hour making "fantasy" layouts.

Thank you, Skyline2uk :)

And here are the SCARM railroad blog posts for March and April.

Check also the recently published first SCARM fleet with several N-scale vessels (created by John Lemay) and download the project file if you want to use some of these ships in your SCARM layouts.

Read more about SCARM and Windows 10 if you plan to migrate to the new operating system and use SCARM on it.



Most users that already upgraded reports that SCARM runs fine, even faster on Windows 10, but if your case is not the same, post here or comment in the blog for any issues or weird behavior when running SCARM on the new OS.

And here are the SCARM model railway blog posts for May, June and July.

Only two months later, and the new version SCARM 0.9.31 is ready and published! It is coming with important new safety features - read more about that in the following link:

SCARM Model Railroad Track Planner 0.9.31 Released

This version should fix the "scramble" bug, which may appear in the older releases, so update is recommended ;)

Thanks Mixy! I love SCARM and have done tons of projections with it. I'd have definitely settled on the wrong baseboard configuration if I hadn't used it, among other things. I found it reasonably intuitive and there is a lot I have yet to explore but thank you for all the work you have put in to making this great tool available!

Thanks, much appreciated. I think I encountered the "scrambling" on occasion but could work round it. No complaints, just continuing gratitude  :beers:
