    I have upload the latest version of SwitchWithIt to SourceForge.net. To download it go to SourceForge.net and do a search for SwitchWithIt. Below is a copy of the release notes for this version.

    First, a request.

    :(Someone recently left a one star rating for the program on SourceForge.net for a bug that took me about 10 minutes to fix. I was never contacted so I wasn't aware of the problem until I was ready to upload the latest version. If you find a problem with the program or it doesn't work the way that you think it should, please contact me at SwitchWithIt@zoho.com. Please don't leave a one star rating for the program on SourceForge.net without giving me the chance to address your concern.

    Two individuals have recently started using the program. They identified several of the issues corrected by this latest release. I would not have known about the problems without their help. I personally use the program only once a month at our club. My personal layout is under reconstruction so I don't have my own operating sessions. I rely on the people that use the program to let me know when something needs fixing.

    SwitchWithIt Release Notes
    Version 1.7.3.5 Date 03/01/2018

    The following changes are incorporated in this version:

    1. Corrects a problem with up-and-back and looped trains. Cars switched between tracks in the originating yard were being added to the length of the train for the entire route of the train. This limited the capacity of the train along its route.


    2. On the Switchlists tab, the value in the departure time column defaulted to 0 (zero) if a value was invalid. It now defaults to a blank entry.

    3. On the Industries tab, adding more than the maximum of 10 sidings caused display problems. This has now be corrected.

    4. Corrects a problem with cars exiting staging and going to a regular yard not always sorted to the correct tracks. This was caused by their load status defaulting to Loaded instead of their actual load status.

    5. Updates the Help file with reference to Routes originating or terminating in a staging yard. A train that is to begin its run in a staging yard must use a route that has its first location as a staging yard. It cannot be the town where the staging yard is located. The same is true for a train that ends its run in a staging yard. The staging yard must be the last location on the route. It cannot be the town where the staging yard is located.

    Version 1.7.3.5 has a minor formatting error on the shipments tab. I have corrected the problem but SourceForge.net is offline for uploading the revised version. I will upload Version 1.7.3.6 as soon as I see that SourceForge is back up and running.

    I thought about it. The program is written in Delphi (Pascal). I am using the free version from Embarcadero. To buy the upgrade that provides Android support would cost $2424.00 and I would have to learn how to convert some Windows specific items to Android. So far I have gotten a total of $90 in donations for the program. I don't use an Android device so I would need to buy one in order to test the program. It doesn't seem like a good idea from my position.
