TrainCrew: Do more than run your train.

This app lets you use a browser (generally recommended on a phone or iPad) to simulate numerous railroad functions that can be performed while running trains.

Current functionality includes

  • Handbrakes: Set and release.
  • Airbrakes: Perform initial, intermediate and continuity tests.
  • Switching: Couple, uncouple, and operate handbrakes.

The "app" is all written in plain HTML (using Bootstrap) and Javascript (using lots of Jquery), so running it and extending it should be relatively easy.

A live version can be found at http://traincrew.conrail1285.com, but you can easily set it up on your own web hosting.

This app was based on ideas from How To Operate a Modern Switching Layout book and the PDC BNML Conductors App.
