Hello, I am Robert Heller, owner of Deepwoods Software, and I am looking for people to test my Model RR software package, The Model Railroad System. I am partitularly interested in people to test it under MS-Windows, since I don't have any MS-Windows systems to test it with (I have several Linux systems and one MacMini). Contact info below in my sig.

What's the difference between this and JMRI?
1) It is coded "closer to the bare metal" -- it is a mix of C++ and Tcl/Tk. It does not need any additional software (eg the JRE) installed and it is faster and uses less system resources (JAVA tends to be something of a pig sometimes).

2) It includes some applications and libraries the JMRI does not include (and I am not sure will ever include): There is a time table application, a freight car forwarder program (using switch lists). It also has support for the Azatrax collection of USB interface boards (JAVA has poor support for non-TTY USB devices).

How does it compare to Train Controller with regard to automated train collision avoidance and transponder equipped decoder locations?

Presently unsupported. If someone can point me at a specification of the interface logic of the transponders, I could write the code to implement it.
