BrickTracks Library for Bluebrick

I have compiled a complete track library with all BrickTracks tracks for the track planning software Bluebrick. The library contains all available BricktTracks tracks and switches. All geometrics have been calculated mathematically correct with full precision.

Bluebrick will then download the library. Click on the “BrickTracks” tab on the track element section to use the library.

Configuration

After downloading the library, it is a good time to optimize your Bluebrick configuration:

  • The BrickTracks Track Library for Bluebrick works best on white background. Navigate to menu “Edit / Preferences”. Select tab “Appearance”. Choose Color Scheme “Classic (printer friendly)”.
  • Stay in the preferences dialog, as we need to do some additional settings there. Select the tab “Part Library”. Select “BrickTracks” and move it up to the top of the list by clicking the “Move Up” button.
  • Still in the preferences dialog, find the box “Part and Bubble Information”. Check “Part Info:” and “Description”.
  • Close the preferences dialog by pressing the “OK” button.

Tips and Tricks

In the library, there are some “sets” of predefined combinations of tracks, e.g. railyards, cross-overs, and pass-throughs. Add one of them to your layout. You can disassemble a set by clicking the right mouse button on it and select the context menu “ungroup”. After ungrouping, you can move the single components of sets individually. Cool, isn’t it?
