We need a new application icon for our Mac OS X app.
Ideally it should communicate the general idea of planning a model
railroad layout, i.e. laying down tracks and planning how the train
lines are running around the layout.
Railroad tracks, train lines, some CAD-ish theme or a combination of
all the above could be a starting point.
If you've got an awesome, completely different idea: great, we'd love
to see it!
A casual, not too technical look would be awesome -
It must however be obvious from the icon that it's not about any kind
of "train game". Huge steam trains and locomotives as a central
are off limits :-)
The icon should fit well into the OS X ecosystem and not look
out-of-place in the OS X dock.
We could imagine something more akin to a the Maps or Pages app icons
would look more 'friendly' or approachable to casual computer users
than a solemn, symbolic iTunes style icon.
We've attached sample layouts created by our users as well as a rough
sketch of our UI as an inspiration.
The legacy app (similar functionality, will be replace with the new
app though) can be found at
