For CATrain 2.2.3Publisher's description


CATrain is a Home & Education software developed by Lycos, Inc.. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for CATrain:

CATrain is a program, with which digital model railway facilities can be sketched, simulated and controlled. Best the possibilities can be explained by CATrain, if the steps are specified, in order to let to CATrain a model railway facility steer.

The appropriate hardware must be developed and attached to the plant. this hardware consists of Plates to solders, more Details is described in program documentation.
In the program everything begins with a new layout.
In the mode 'Layout Design' is provided the schematic track control diagram inclusive switches, signals, detectors, upward Gradients, railroad overpasses, bridges, tunnels etc. on the screen. It does not depend on a 1:1 illustration of the route network, but only that all connections are drawn in. The proportions of the individual sections are adapted in the next step. Detectors should be used by the way only, if a plant is to be really controlled - otherwise the program could ReAct sometimes somewhat strangely...

Now change into the mode 'signals,turnouts and rail sections'. There now its clear address is assigned to each magnet article. Here also the decision is made whether the program may steer this magnet article automatically or only 'manually', thus only by click the user. The track sections can be adapted now also in your length. A section, which is large in the layout only 3 fields, can be large in reality approximately 15 fields, therefore the length on fifteen is adjusted. Since the distance is also very kurvig, the maximum speed is throttled here by fictitious 310 Km/h on 100 Km/h. Later a course on this part of the distance drives slows down it its speed and accelerates afterwards again automatically.

Now the individual courses should be defined. Each locomotive knows its own acceleration profile, the locomotive address, the number of railroad cars, the maximum speed, which is assigned to color and a speaking name.
