Version 2.1

Click a picture to see a full-size screen capture

Train Scheduler allows you to create an inventory of your trains, and then select trains from the inventory to place in a departure list. Check the box beside the train description to put it in the departure list, and uncheck the box to remove it. Both the inventory list and the departure list may be printed. Sample The program schedules departure times at an interval you choose, and a departure direction can optionally be chosen. The departure list may be sorted in a random order if desired.

You can save your inventory list at any time. If you forget to save it, you will be reminded when you exit the program. Your inventory list will be automatically loaded the next time you run the program.


The Reliability control can help create a real-world scheduling enviornment. If Reliability is set to a number other than 100%, the program may decide that one of your trains is unfit for departure. The lower the setting, the greater the chance of a disabled train. The decision is made if you randomize (sort in a random order) the list. If a train is selected for malfuntion, you can decide whether you want to replace it with another train in your inventory, or just cancel its departure.

An optional note can be entered on the screen which will be printed at the top of the departure list.


I wrote the original version of this program for a friend, and I have since enchanced it in hopes that it will be useful to others.
