SwitchList Icon

In Depth: When to Use SwitchList

I designed SwitchList for my own layout. Other, similar layouts should find SwitchList just right. If your layout is smaller and focused on switching, does not have a large, busy yard, or has few timetable-based freights, you may also find it useful.

Although SwitchList could work for layouts with large yards, the current yard reports are probably insufficient to help a yard crew know how to sort and organize cars in the yard.

Similarly, although SwitchList can handle through trains stopping at a yard, SwitchList would not easily handle cases where cars need to be switched between through trains.

If you have ideas on how to make SwitchList more useful for larger layouts, drop me a note.
