Does anybody have the name of a site, source or product that has solid HO layout software that is more higher end then right track and spread sheets and pushes more towards actual blueprints?

Thanks

Anyrail software

Hi Guys
I down loaded the free version of Anyrail, it is pretty cool the way it works and can be frustrating until you learn how to use it, it may take some time to get good with this software but I like it.

I'm not sure why you're posting the key like it's some sort of secret. XTrackCAD is open source freeware, you don't need a special key to register it. Download it and use it, it's free!

XTrkCad is very powerful for a free program but it has a a lot harder learning curve. If you read through the directions it is not that bad. AnyRail is way easier/ faster to use though.

I've been using AnyRail for well over a year now and I've done hundreds of layout designs for myself and others. I havent tried the others but I was sold on AnyRail from the first few layouts. I've even dabbled in aerial photo overlays to make it look real. I'm still not very good and constructing buildings beyond basic shapes, but there are a few other folks out there that have done some. Just look on the AnyRail forum located somewhere on thier website.
