    Default Track layng tips

    The only tracklaying tutorial I know of is on the 0catch site, though it is good are there other tutorials?
    I'm not too good at scenery but my tracklaying is a blight, turnouts and crossovers in particular, please share your knowledge!

    I measure my real world turnouts on Google Earth using the GE ruler, and use the Trainz ruler to match those measurements.

    Holding down on the "SHIFT" KB key stops tracks from clicking together like magnets.

    When you lay a track you should straighten it, using the straighten button (unless you are laying a curve).
