該工具允許預覽路由文件。 可以移動，旋轉和縮放鏡頭，可以跳到車站和位子點 (Point of Interest)，還可以啟用一系列選項。 如果路線包含錯誤，則可以選擇顯示報告。
A file that is passed as a command line argument is automatically opened at startup. If a CSV file is determined to be a CSV object instead of a CSV route, ObjectViewer.exe will be started if present inside the same folder as RouteViewer.exe. This allows you to link CSV files against either Route Viewer or Object Viewer and still have the correct tool opening the file.
Please note that Route Viewer always interprets files as UTF-8 unless a byte order mark indicates a different Unicode encoding. Non-Unicode encodings are not supported.
For moving the camera, use the WASD keys, for rotating the Arrow keys. Jump to stations with the PageUp and PageDown keys, or jump to points of interests using the Num1 and Num7 keys. You can also enter a specific track position using the number keys, then confirm with the Return key or cancel with the Escape key. For relative offsets, the prefixes Minus and Plus are also accepted. There are other useful keys which are hinted at in RouteViewer’s main window.
此工具尚未支持插件API。 這意味著僅支持內置材質格式(BMP，PNG，GIF，JPG，TIF) 和內置聲音格式 (WAV)。

● 版本 184.108.40.206 (2011-11-30)
- 支援對託管內容包(Managed content)引用。
● 版本 220.127.116.11 (2011-01-07)

● 版本 18.104.22.168 (2010-07-31)
- Animated objects were not updated immediately after loading or reloading routes, but only after RefreshRate seconds had passed.
● 版本 22.214.171.124 (2010-03-14)
- If a CSV file is passed as a command-line argument, Object Viewer is started if the file is determined to be a CSV object instead of a CSV route. The detection is now solely based on the presence of the CreateMeshBuilder string.
● 版本 126.96.36.199 (2010-02-14)
- You can now enter a track position using the number keys and jump to that position.
● 版本 188.8.131.52 (2010-01-24)
- Removed the dependency on specific versions of the Tao.OpenAL, Tao.OpenGL and Tao.SDL libraries, which could cause problems in recent Linux distributions.
