How-to Library: Track Planning Made Easy - Computer-aided design, Part 3 Elevations and turnouts

Modeler Gerry Leone wraps up his track-planning mini-series on computer-aided design (CAD) software with a tutorial on adding elevations and turnouts. Working with the simple plan he drew in part 2, Gerry shows you how the software figures distances and grades, and how you can use that information to determine if your design has enough clearance for trains you want to run. Although the mini-series concludes with part 3, leave your comments below and let us know if you’d like to see more videos like these on MRVP!
