I use Empire Express on my Macintosh OS X system.
There is also a product named Railmodeller for which I have the demo copy.
I've seen o particular reason to change to it.
I'd suggest XTrkCad, which does indeed have some Gn3 scale parameter files
http://www.sillub.com/ OR http://sourceforge.net/projects/xtrkcad /
XTrkCad is available in binary form for Linux and MS-Windows AND is
open source. I don't know if the source code will build as-is under
MacOSX or not (it might if you have the proper support libraries (X11,
glib+-1.2, and gtk+-1.2) installed, along with the needed tool chain
(gcc, gas, linker, etc.).

I like RR-Track at http://www.rrtrack.com /
I found this software at a TCA York swap meet and initially bought it for
developing a Lionel post-war O gauge layout and a pre-war standard gauge
layout. The program was easy to use and it has a good library of the Lionel
accessories. When I got into G-gauge, I added the Aristo and LGB track
libraries and used RR-Track to design my backyard layout. I was very
impressed that the software has the exact dimensions for these G gauge track
systems (a 5' straight section is NOT 5' long!!), so that I was able to cut
fitters to the RR-Track predicted lengths and everything fit perfectly.
