[Sample Layouts]

JTrain is software that helps you create a train track layout. It has a library of pieces, simply provide a list of pieces and it renders the track layout.

For example, if you put this list into a file SmallLoop.layout:

Straight8
SmallCurve
SmallCurve
SmallCurve
SmallCurve
Straight8
SmallCurve
SmallCurve
SmallCurve
SmallCurve
And run this command:
java -jar jtrain.jar -file SmallLoop.layout
You will see the above layout on-screen (and saved in track.png). Alternatively you can enter part names on the command line directly:
java -jar jtrain.jar Straight8 SmallCurve SmallCurve SmallCurve SmallCurve Straight8 SmallCurve SmallCurve SmallCurve SmallCurve
