I have used the db in Shipit! and Yard Office.What, if any software have you used and what were it's strengths and drawbacks? Has anyone used the db in the JMRI package?

Well it turned out they were gone. I had Word Perfect Suite and found that Quattro Pro would convert Lotus files to Quattro Pro format and that is what I am using today. It is essentially the same as Lotus 123.
Now I find that Word Perfect is no longer available, so If I have any problems, I will have to go to Excell. This is what happens to any software programs that you finally figure out how to use. If it ain't part of Microsoft, it will disappear from the shelves.
