    Yup, I use this program. It is free, comes without any data loaded into the database, so the user has to add all the data into the fields, but this is no big deal. I have about 191 entries to date. Meets my needs :thumb:

    My son set up something similar for me using Excel: the categories are customised to what I required and show all of the trains that I currently own, sorted by type,and arranged numerically, plus all of my freelanced railroad cars in existence, including those sold, given away, or physically scrapped. These are colour-coded, so I can ensure at a glance that I don't make a car with a duplicate number, or, if I do, can note that it's a re-use of the number, just like the prototype. There are also categories for car length, manufacturer, value, and any special equipment, similar to the ORER.

    Oh man, thats what I tried to achieve before I found RRTrains 2000, but I could not figure out how to make the fields do what I wanted them to. No less than 4 guys in the local club are using Excel....

    Eh. I haven't found anything better than Microsoft Access for creating databases. Any insuance company can read the files if you ever neeed to file a claim and you can distribute them to friends to aid them with their Christmas shopping, too. :D

    I also have that same program. But I use Microsoft's Excell. The reason being is my insurance company perfers it because my agent has it in there computer. Once you get the template set up that you want. It's very easy to use. My advice it. If you plan to inventory your railroad collection. Check with your insurance company on how they want it deleivered to them.
