We should ask Justin about that  :)

Perhaps, he will add some scenery or town/village scene as the tracks seems to be enough (at least for me).

I have used SCARM for several layout modules and it is fantastic
@hegstad1 this is the software I was trying to remember. I designed the Spadina Module with it.
It died with that laptop though.  :(

That's a lot of track.  But, I think the layout builder missed a spot in the back right corner.  :D

I tried this over the past couple days.  This is the best track planning software I have used.  Only took me a couple hours (watched a couple videos and played around with it a bit) to learn enough to be productive.  Once I got past a few basic steps, it has been really intuitive (and my friends will tell you that is seldom a word I use to describe modern software).  Very pleased.

I like SCARM enough to have bought a license, but I REALLY wish it had a tool for laying out easements.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

I am really glad that you like SCARM :)

See here one more project in N scale, added to the layout database:

Depoe Bay & Sitka Lumber RR Layout in N-scale



It is nice and very detailed N-scale layout project, featuring sea coast and mountain theme set somewhere in the U.S. Pacific Northwest with fishing and lumber industries.

Hope you will like it and hope also it will help you to draw inspiration for more ;)
