Hi Mixy,
As a new member of the forum I am using my first post to say thank you for the SCARM software. Being retired and never having worked with computers I find other layout planning software rather daunting. I've tried Anyrail and Xtrkcad but I just haven't the patience to persevere with them. I'm sure they are both excellent but far too complicated for me.
I had no trouble downloading and getting started with SCARM and the help file was easy to understand if a little sparse. I soon discovered how to do things not covered by the help file by experimenting, and was surprised how simple it all is. My baseboard will be a 'U' shape built against three walls of my loft room and drawing this was easy, which is more than I can say for the other two programs. I'm getting the hang of placing and connecting track and finding it most interesting and enjoyable.
That well-used saying "If I can do it, anybody can!" is most apt in this case, and I look forward to future developments.

Best wishes,
