Model Trains Simulator (PE) – Sample Session #1

This is the first video that shows recorded sample session, performed in the Model Trains Simulator (Power Edition) on a compact N-scale layout, designed by Milen Peev.

The simulation shows a short passenger train, traveling from one terminus station to another and then going back by switching of the leading locos.

You can watch the video in SCARM YouTube channel or in full-screen mode by clicking on bottom right icon in the embedded player below.

The layout seen in the video can be downloaded from the SCARM Layouts & Track Plans database from the link below.

  1. Not sure if this is the correct place to put this. Is there any way to turn off simulation of grades in MTS? and how to MU locos.

  2. Hello Alan,

    Yes. Start MTS and open the settings from “Tools” > “Settings” menu. Search for “Realism” options and turn off “Gravity”.

    About MU locos – just couple 2 or more of them. The throttle controls automatically all locos in the consist.

  3. Thanks for the prompt reply, I will try that tomorrow.

  4. I’m working on a layout using Peco code55. I have the Pro version of the simulator. I’m using the latest version of SCARM, the paid version.
    In this layout there is a 10 track single-ended staging yard connected to a wye. The yard tracks are composed of flex track sections, anywhere from 7 to 19 feet long.
    Locos will run into this yard about half way, and then stop. Holding the throttle at a setting doesn’t matter, trains move a bit and stop. They will not run to the stub end of the yard.
    If I replace the flex track sections used in any particular yard track with sectional straight sections the locos will run all the way to the stub end.
    I purchased the pro version so I could test operations. If I have to re-design the layout using sectional track the parts list becomes meaningless.
    Do you have any idea what could be happening, and how to solve it?

  5. I have refreshed my SCARM and Simulator file/key files from my license/user SCRAM Web page and still can not activate a switch while I am running a locomotive/view showing the switch ahead of the loco and clicking on the track with my mouse as I approach the switch. This used to work but is not working now. How do I get the function back? If possible, please reply to my email address as I am never certain how to find your reply in all these pages. Thank You!!

  6. Hello Douglas,
    That seems to be some bug, related to recent Windows or graphic drivers update as there is nothing changed in SCARM about this. Unfortunately, I am not sure what components are affected and therefore I cannot propose a solution or solve that for you.
