The new SCARM v. 0.9.35 is ready and published! It comes with many new and updated track libraries, many bugfixes and more powerful Model Trains Simulator extension. See more about the new version here:

SCARM Track Planning Software 0.9.35 Released



Together with the new release, a new part of the website is also launched - it is a database with Virtual Rolling Stock for use in the MTS PE extension.



Hope you will like all new stuff about SCARM ;)

I really like what you've done with this program and the fact that you continue to upgrade it. I've recently started to play around with it and have found it very easy to use, especially after watching the how to videos. I hope you continue to add more of these. However, I was wondering about the print function, I know there is a work around, but any plans to allow for one click printing 1:1? Thanks

Yes, I have plans to add a special feature for easy printing in 1:1 in some of the next versions of SCARM, but can't tell when it will be ready.

IMPORTANT!

A bug was reported and confirmed in the last version of SCARM that may prevent starting of the program on some computers. The patched version of the program was released today. Please upgrade to SCARM 0.9.36, which can be downloaded from www.scarm.info to fix the issue.

See more about this bug-fix update in the following blog post: SCARM v. 0.9.36 Released.

I am sorry if the bugs caused any problems and inconvenience in your work with SCARM. If you see another problems, please report them here or in SCARM Blog and I will try to fix them ASAP.

Here are the SCARM model railroading blog posts for February.

For those, who already got the MTS Power Edition - there is an easy way to stack all virtual vehicles in the sim in a single column. See how here:

And here are listed the model train articles for March in the SCARM blog.

Check also the first sample video session from the Model Trains Simulator, presenting a short train moving between two terminus stations on a N-scale layout.



Finally, one more video about a new feature in the MTS PE, that I am working on - it's a Driver's Camera Viewing mode that should be ready for the next release of SCARM.

+1 for 1:1 printing and modular layout options.  Sims are cool, but not a must have.  Would love to be able to use a freeware solution to design & print 1:1 template with accuracy enough to hand lay track.

Since I downloaded about a month ago I assume I can upgrade?  The modular feature will be of use to me.

Here are the SCARM model train blog posts for April.

If your older version of SCARM is not yet updated or does not start correctly, update to the latest version - see the article about v. 0.9.37.

And the automated 1:1 fullsize printout is on the way - should be ready for the next version of the program :)

Great looking layout! Thanks for sharing :)

And here I want to share my only blog post for May:

International Danube Modular Layout Meeting - Russe 2017



The event hosted layouts in HO, TT and N scales and was carried out by more than 40 participants from several countries. Here is the layout scheme:



I also attended and even drove several trains :) See the pictures that I shot in the blog post's gallery.

Last but not least, I should mention that one of the train stations and several other single modules are entirely designed in SCARM  ;)

Yes, the English is the most common language on the international train meetings in Europe together with the local language of the hosting country.

You can see the calendar of the upcoming major events in the FREMO website: https://www.fremo-net.eu/en/home/ (the link is on the left menu).

Some of these events are quite big...



...others are closed for the general public, so read the conditions before arranging a trip.
