Hello all )

There is a new website for collect together model train track plans and layouts in all scales and sizes, build with SCARM planning software

SCARM – Model Train Layouts & Track Plans

Most of the content in the site is created by SCARM users and sent to me by e-mail. Some of the layouts are already presented in SCARM blog, but there are new projects and more will come soon. At the moment, I am editing and uploading all stuff, but in the near future I plan to add support for user registrations, so everybody to be able to create an account and to upload projects in the site.

Everybody can browse the projects in the site or search and filter the track plans by several criteria, such as “scale”, “size”, “trackage” and so on. In example, the following link will show all railway layouts and plans in N scale (http://www.scarm.info/layouts/track_plans.php?scale=N), listed for now in the site. Every project has its own page, where it is presented with more pictures, described with many parameters (such as minimum radius, maximum grade, suitable traffic, etc.) and sometimes explained by me or by its author. All (or almost all) published layouts will have corresponding SCARM files ready to be downloaded from the links at bottom in the layout’s page. There is also an option for each project to be rated with rating stars from 1 to 5 – this is located below the description. Voting system works without registration, but is limited to one vote per project from a visitor in order to make ratings relevant and correct.

The site is also optimized for smartphones and tables, so you can browse it almost anywhere and anytime. However, some pictures may not look very detailed on small phone screens, but in overall you can get a good impression even from 320×480 sized cell phones.

At the moment, there is no option for commenting below the layouts, but such feature may appear in the future. The site is now in beta state and needs to be used for some period in real environment to see how it performs, is it easy and useful, etc. So please, try it and comment here what do you think about it.

And if you have some cool SCARM layout or track plan that you want to share with others, just send your .scarm project file to SCARM email (available on main site).

Hope you will like the site and will get many ideas from it even if you don’t use SCARM )

I corrected the links in the first post - now they should work normally. Don't know why they were broken...

I thought SCARM had been around for a while and wasn't new.

It has been, but Mixy is promoting his new website and updates.

And since we can't merge threads under the current forum architecture, I'm happy to let this run so long as it is more or less restricted to the website, and discussion about the program itself uses the other thread.

I hope that everybody will find something interesting and inspiring on the site Smile
