Because my model train collection grows, I wanted to enter them into a database. This database should fulfill the following requirements:

  • It must be usable with macOS, Windows and Linux.
  • Several track gauges must be usable.
  • Beside a list of own trains, a wish list must be available.
  • It must be able to save at least one image for every train.
  • The history (maintenance, repair, retrofit...) of each model must be savable.
  • I want to enter all spare parts of each model.
  • Information about the original must be recordable.
  • The life cycle of the original should be savable.
  • There should be graphical reports available.
  • A simple selection of the models (e.g. era) must be possible.

Unfortunately, I did not found a program that fulfills all above requirements. On the other side, I had experience with the development of database applications (Gebührenrechner, Bambini, Mac-HaBu...). This was the reason, I decided to develop my own program. Additionally to above requirements, I realized a very flexible concept. All parameters (gauges, era, manufacturer...) can be changed by the user.

With iMoVe Pro, you get the possibility to administer all data on the iPad or iPhone. Here, you can see and edit the data. With the synchronization, both system are always up to date.

I use this program for the management of my own model train collection. Accordingly, I will add new features as fast as possible. But I like to add ideas from other users, too. Please let me know your ideas.


Mac-MoVe, Lin-MoVe and Win-MoVe offer some very interesting advantages:

  • Mac-MoVe (macOS), Win-MoVe (Windows) and Lin-MoVe (Linux) are full compatible together. With one registration you can use the data alternately on all three platforms.
  • There is a version for iPhone and iPad, too. And with the integrated synchronization, the data will be always up to date.
  • Mac-MoVe, Win-MoVe and Lin-MoVe are based on the already existing programs (Mac-HaBu, Win-HaBu and Lin-HaBu). The programs are introduced for many years. Many features (Interfaces, GUI, Database, backup…) of this existing program could be reused.
  • New functions in Mac-HaBu, Win-HaBu or Lin-HaBu will be implemented in Mac-MoVe, Win-MoVe and Lin-MoVe, too. Only functions, which makes no sense, will not be ported.
  • All data are stored normally in a local database file. For this, no knowledge about the administration of a database server is necessary. Alternatively, different methods exist to use it on several workstations.
  • As with other shareware, there are no costs for an update.

What's new?

In version 10.5 the following important functions were implemented:

  • The report Quantity can be used to calculate a total for several models.
  • The order of the models within a train can now be changed.
  • The trains shown in the train formation can be output graphically.

We also corrected all known errors and optimized the usage.

You can download Mac-MoVe, Win-MoVe and Lin-MoVe and start the administration of your train collection.

Notes to above versions:

  • The version for ARM can be used on a Raspberry Pi if the system requirements (e.g. memory) are fulfilled,
  • For an update from versions prior 8, it is necessary to update to version 5 first. Only after this, you can update to the current version. Please use Mac-MoVe 8, Win-MoVe 8 or Lin-MoVe 8.for this step.
  • With xMoVe, a version for macOS is available, which can be loaded from the App Store.
  • You can also read the user guide for xMoVe comfortably in the app "Books" on your Mac, iPad or iPhone.
  • When you start Lin-MoVe the first time, it may be possible that the controls are not displayed correct. If this occurs, open the preferences and adjust the control.
  • For a faster download, all versions (not Win-MoVe) are stored as an archive file. Normally, you don't need special software to unpack the archive.
  • When starting the installer for Win-MoVe, there may be several security warnings. The reason is that Windows wants to protect you from viruses and Trojans. Our applications are developed under macOS and are therefore protected from malware for Windows. Therefore, please confirm all the warnings.


This software is Shareware. It may be copied and used by everyone. However, copy always the original version, together with this documentation.
