There are many good programs, some commercial, some 'shareware'.

Here are two:

The second one is called Cadrail. It is now in version 9. I have used it since version 1. Tom is very responsive to questions and problems. It is not perfect, no software ever is, but it works for me.

I have used (and like) AnyRail for track planning purposes. This is a rather extensive program that has a free trial version; whilst the full version costs ~$60. The learning curve for this program is fairly shallow...although I must admit I only use a fraction of what the program's capabilities.
