SwitchList is a Mac program for automatically making lists of freight cars to switch on a model railroad. If you have a small model railroad or a shelf layout and want a switch list program that's easy to set up and easy to use, try it out!

Switchlist's Best Features:
  • Large print switch lists are easy to read, look handwritten, and look prototypical. Make your operators think you spent all night writing up switch lists!
  • Graphical user interface for setting up and printing out switch lists. No more editing cryptic files and searching through a sea of checkboxes.
  • Easy to adjust the available cargos for more realistic traffic flows. Adjusting operating sessions no longer means writing out a hundred new car cards!
  • Not all cars have to move each session, so movements appear more random. No more repetitive, identical operating sessions.
  • Allows realistic routing of different railroad's empty freight cars to different staging yards. Empties leave in a realistic way.
  • Assigns freight cars based on owner of car. A C&O boxcar won't be used to haul cement locally for your California railroad.
  • Define your own switchlist styles. If the built-in realistic switchlists don't match your railroad, then just define your own. You can even generate custom switchlists that look like car cards and are swipeable on your iPhone or iPad!
  • View switchlists on your iPad or iPhone. Save paper and work switchlists displayed on your phone, or check your layout state from your iPad.

  • What's New
  • New "Railroad Letterhead" and "Waybill" switchlist styles.
  • Each cargo can have a different unloading time -1, 2, or 3 days. Variable unloading times allow some freight cars to stay at industries and complicate switching.
  • Cargo tab now hints about how busy each industry will be - quiet to overloaded.
