JMRI (JMRI Model Railroad Interface)
 is Advanced Model Railroad software for Digital Controls, Layouts, and Displays. These tools work on Windows, MacOS X, Linux, and Other JAVA 1.5 capable systems.

Software Santa Sez: "If you like THIS then you'll LOVE C.A.T.S. !" Go check out the
'Computer Automated Traffic System (CATS), a suite of open source programs that provide signal logic on a model railroad layout' project! You ADD the CATS to a JMRI to make a Complete Integrated system!

What is JMRI?

The JMRI project is building tools for model railroad computer control. We want it to be usable to as many people as possible, so we're building it in Java to run anywhere, and we're trying to make it independent of specific hardware systems.

JMRI is intended as a jumping-off point for hobbyists who want to control their layouts from a computer without having to create an entire system from scratch.

JMRI provides the DecoderPro and PanelPro applications, tools for model railroaders who want to configure DCC decoders and create control panels.

 A better tool for programming decoders. DecoderPro simplifies the job of configuring complicated DCC decoders by providing screens on which you can select the various options and values you want.

 Designing and Operating CRT based CTC control panels that reflect the real-time state of your railroad and let you control it - almost like a Prototype dispatcher!

Cool Uses
People have used JMRI to do some great things. They've built incredible dispatcher panels, controlled impressive layouts, and built other tools for the model railroad community. Our Gallery page highlights some of these.

General Tools
JMRI provides powerful tools for working with your layout.
Layout Automation
JMRI can be used to automate parts of your layout, from simply controlling a crossing gate to running trains in the background.
