Creating a sample layout

Open Rail3D and you should have a blank screen wth just the default green surface.

Click the track laying tool on the toolbar:


(or select "Lay Track" from the "Track" menu).

You are now in "Track Laying" mode.  

A simple oval

We are going to create a simple oval of track.

Lay the straight sides of the oval, like this:


the reason we lay the straight sides first is that by doing so we get nice straight sides.

Now join up the corners:


Note that if any of the nodes do not join properly, they will be marked with a cross.  When you have got rid of all the crosses, the oval is complete.

Save your layout.

In the next stage, Adding a train we will place our first train on the layout.
