Quaker Valley Software
Car Cards abd Waybill Operations Software for Model Railroader
Computer Printed Car Cards and Waybills
Quaker Valley Software produced a set of programs to print car cards and waybills compatible with those available from Old Line Graphics and Micro Mark as described by Tony Koester in his March '93 Model Railroader magazine article.
The software was originally developed in the 1980s to run
under early versions of Windows. The last update was made in
2004 and is still used on the Quaker Valley to print car cards and
There are some operating system issues runing the software on the
newest 64 bit versions of Windows 7 & 8 and we have decided to
suspend support for these newer systems. There are many options
today for printing car cards and waybills that did not exist in
2004. For example, you can print waybills using an Excel spread
sheet that now pernits printing text upside down.
Check with us and identify your version of Windows and printer before ordering. All versions of the software provide car card formats and access to a large database of prototypical shipper locations. When the software was developed, printers were unable to print upside down as required for the 4 sided waybills. The Waybill program was setup to run the sheet through the printer 5 times to get the four sided waybill. Today an Excel spreadsheet can print a foldable version of the waybill. A copy of the spreadsheet is included on the distribution CD. Check out the program details at:
