ConBuilder Pro

a consist building and
trainset file checking utility.

By Carlos AM Gomes, Joe Smith & Charles Stagg.


The function of this program is to help all those who want to have a "clean" environment for MSTS. The main function is, of course, to make consist building an easy task, but since there are so many files involved, there are chances for some to be missing or to contain errors; therefore the feature of performing tests was needed. One of the main things it does, is to check if all needed files are in the right place. It also has many other tools and features such as Loose Consist editing, and Cabview and Sound aliasing.

Besides a major Help file, a private support forum is provided for priority help with ConBuilder and MSTS to the purchasers of ConBuilder. Want to see the help file? Here is the download for it.
