.ral File Extension

Developer: Span Software
File type: WinRail Track Design File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ral. Files with the file extension .ral can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ral files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ral file?

The WinRail Track Design File is stored in the RAL format and is affixed with the RAL extension, and is used by the Winrail program. These RAL files are generally classified as data files that contain railroad track design including track positions, article numbers of the tracks used, and other contents that may affect the design such as buildings, trees, roadbeds, and other objects. The WinRail software is used for designing and drawing model railway layouts. It also allows car racing tracks design and supports different levels for the elements using a layer concept in design. The whole layout designs can be printed to a complete set of scaled printings in full colour by using a colour printer and small sections of the layout, or individual pages, can be printed if needed. The Span Software WinRail and Span Software WinRail Free 3D Layout Viewer software can be used in Microsoft Windows based systems to access and run the RAL files.

how to open a .ral file?

Launch a .ral file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .ral file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .ral files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ral file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ral file will open the correct application.

Span Software WinRail

Span Software WinRail

WinRail is a software product used in designing and drawing model railway layouts with a drawing accuracy of up to +/- 0.05 mm. The software knows the gauge of the track section which is used to calculate the length of the rails of flex sections and displays the rails in the correct distance if the display of ties is switched on. It features Gradient tools for entering gradients without the need of cutting the line off the layout, the 3D-View is orthogonal through a perspective view, dialogue-window to edit existing benchworks. The Module-Definition files is where decimals are entered for the specification of the position of track and catenary masts. Layers may be hidden or displayed with names that contain a certain text and more than one layer can be active simultaneously in order to be able to place catenary in another layer as the track sections. Each layer has a Display or hide layer command for each that can be dragged into a toolbar to hide or display a layer in just one click. It also features a Loosen track tool which removes all connections of a line. The 3D-editor creates tunnel portals individually which are docked and aligned automatically when placed into a track section. WinRail uses Unicode like Windows does.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ral files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ral. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
