Rail3D was started in 1999.  Prior to writing Rail3D the author had used various railway simulators, but none did quite what I wanted.  While there were lots of good programs, various things were not satisfactory with them including:

  • Limitations on size of layout and/or number of trains that can be run.

  • Inadequate signalling model.

  • Not running properly under Windows.

  • Difficulty in creating layouts.

  • Difficulty in creating models.

So I set out to see what I could produce myself, the aims of the project were (and still are):

  • To simulate a whole railway system: multiple trains, multiple timetables, multiple tracks.

  • Unlimited (or at least sufficiently large limits) number of trains and size of layout.

  • Program that runs properly under Windows.

  • Realistic signalling implementation.

  • Easy track creation.

  • Easy model creation.

Since then Rail3D has developed to the present state: it is an ongoing project and new versions and updates are continually produced. 

I believe Rail3D most of the aims above have been achieved and Rail3D is unique in its:

  • Ability to simulate a whole railway system with multiple trains operating automatically to different timetables.

  • Ease of layout creation.

  • Free availability!

Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
