Train Trek Layout Simulation (LS)™ is advanced automation and simulation control software specially designed for Märklin Digital system.


The main goal of the software tool is to provide easy layout simulation and automation of a Marklin based digital layout.


Plan, build and simulate your layout before running it! After the simulation, user may run the entire layout manually and/or automatically with a click of a button. Train Trek Layout Simulation (LS)™ is user friendly, mainly intuitive, yet advanced behind the scene.



Train Trek Layout Simulation (LS)™ is the next generation of computer controlled model railroading software. Here, we took further steps and implemented new technologies and concepts. The basic idea is to create an entire computerized environment to simulate and automate Digital Layouts. Users can easily build their layouts on-screen and simulate all trains operations prior to their actual run. Any type of automated routes can be visually simulated and inspected before actual route execution.


User can create an entire layout operation that is included but not limited to hidden yards, passenger and freight routes, daily scheduled operations and more. After planning layout activities, user can simulate it on-screen manually and/or automatically before real execution.


This feature enables users to create experimental routes for further testing and planning. When the desired route is finalized, user may execute it with a click of a button! The program offers user friendly track editor to assemble layouts. Enhancing the system, we incorporated a scenery editor to design the layout landscape.


This feature enables the user to design the layout’s landscape by creating roads, trees, lakes, buildings, train stations, refineries, residential houses or any other structure desired by user. Now the layout looks more realistic, like in real life! We designed the system to be ‘light weight’ and not overload your PC memory, enabling smooth simulation and flawless automation. The program is for beginners as well as experienced railroaders. Most of all, it is a lot of fun!





Train Trek Layout Simulation™ (LS) provides the next Key features:

  • Advanced, yet user friendly Tracks Editor. Simple and diagrammatically assemble your layout, place your trains and scenery.
  • Scenery Editor – Layout Landscape Editor. This feature includes terrain such as trees, lakes and roads. Also, Structural objects such as train stations, residential houses, buildings etc.’)
  • Time Table – Full Layout Automation. User can design a route according to steps and schedules. The entire layout activities can be automatically controlled. The system offers the control of all trains, turnouts, Accessories, Sensors support, delays, acceleration/deceleration, lights, sound and functions.
  • Digital ID – Each layout controlled component (Trains, Turnouts, Etc,) is identified by a certain ID and can be visually viewed at any time.
  • Manual and Automatic control – User may interact with the system, while automatically controlled, by simple clicking on objects.
  • Visual representation of sensors activation and any other controlled component.
  • The system is especially designed for Märklin Digital systems and maximizes the system’s features.
  • Advanced graphics, yet ‘light weight’, not clogging the system’s memory.
  • Robust documentation and a ‘To Get You Started in 3 Easy Steps’ manual.
  • Live Update – Automatically upgrade your system with any new releases or fixes directly from Tayden’s web site.


Train Trek Layout Simulation™ (LS) Tracks and Turnout Editor: Diagrammatically assemble your layout on-screen! The track editor is not scaled or bound to any manufacturer track system which provides all the flexibility to create your layout for all types of trains or tracks! Simple for use, mainly intuitive!
