iTrain offers an easy-to-use solution for controlling your model railroad with your computers, especially if you want to automate only parts of your layout and keep control of the rest yourself. For example automatic block control avoids collisions and you control which train is driving manually or fully automatically according to a selected route.

Modern software techniques make it possible to run the program on all major computer operating systems such as Windows, OS X, Linux and OpenSolaris. Client server architecture allows extra computers to be used as extra overviews or controllers. The switchboard is fully scalable with an optional layout overview for large layouts, and allows different tabs for different views of (parts of) the layout.

It is not necessary to study for weeks to be able to use iTrain. Simply draw the layout and assign the signals and feedbacks to the blocks for automatic control of your block signals without providing difficult rules. Defining a route can be as simple as selecting the order of blocks, but more advanced options are also possible. In case you are using a modern system like the Central Station or ECoS, iTrain will import all loc, turnout and signal definitions so you can start even faster.

iTrain comes in three editions: Lite, Standard and Professional. They differ in the supported features and you can easily upgrade later by purchasing a new license. There is no need to do a reinstall or to make changes to your definitions.

In general the Lite edition is for users who only want to drive manually with their locomotive and to use the switchboard to easily set turnouts and signal.

The Standard edition adds fully automatic driving via preselected routes.

The Professional edition contains everything including networking (use of multiple computers at the same time with optionally different operating systems) and/or to make use of a second screen (to display another switchboard and/or locomotive overview).
