    Hi RR:wave:
    I use Xtrkcad
    SourceForge.net: XtrkCad Model RR Track Planning Software
    There is also one you can download from Atlas. Both are freeware. I think Xtrk is the best of the two, but it has a fairly steep learning curve. Make sure you do the tutorial, that helps a lot. Also, download the registration # to unlock Xtrk.
    The one from Atlas, can,t remember the name right now, seems to be limited in what you can do, as far as laying track.

    You could try Google images for NYO&W, it might come up with some ideas.
