RPUG member user guides

Some members have written some great user guides aimed at the new RailPro user that go through things like installing and setting up RailPro software, how to download files, and how to update RailPro products in an easy to understand illustrated format. These are a very good resource for any RailPro user.


The bug list (joining RPUG required)

We try to maintain a list of bugs and any workarounds in RailPro for the benefit of the RPUG community. A problem you may be having could be a known bug so don't forget to check the bug list as well if you are having a problem.


The files section (joining RPUG required)

Members can contribute files to the community, generally for creating custom sounds and pictures.


The rest of the RPUG forum

There is a lot of information posted on the RailPro User group. Something you are thinking of may have already been asked and answered by somebody else, so dive right in and explore what's already been written on RPUG.
