The cars window allows you to edit your car roster. or add a car by entering a car's number, road, type, length. The program will automatically calculate the car's weight based on length and the scale you are modeling. Optionally the car's color, build date, load and owner can be added. You may want to switch a group of cars as a unit, then you may create a "kernel". You can assign any number of cars to a kernel but the type of the first car assigned will be used by the program to determine if the kernel is allowed at a location. The entire length of the kernel is used to determine if the cars in the kernel will fit. Note that the program also includes space for the car's couplers when calculating the length of a kernel.(group of similar cars)
