    Hello everyone. I am new to the hobby... or least new since I have not touched it in 20 years. What are your thoughts on the layout software? CadRail, 3d Planit... etc... let know your opinions.
    Thanks

    It is free, see the link halfway down the page.
    Good tutorial in the help section.
    Reasonably quick to learn.

    Does not have a 3-D view. It has elevations and grades, but you have to check clearances yourself.
