TODO

Currently the module is very rough and supports very few operations:

  • drawing and connecting rails by left-clicking and dragging mouse on the canvas.

  • removing a node by right-clicking on it on the canvas.

  • placing a train on a rail by middle-clikcing on a rail on the canvas.

  • support for more than one train

  • changing switch exits by double-clicking on it.

  • saving / loading to a file

The amount of work needed is much more vast and includes (but not limited to):

  • adding coaches to trains

  • rc-file for the application

  • better interface (what about one-button mice?)

  • available help

  • etc...
