Hello!Can you suggest me any extension of AutoCAD if I'd like to create simple schemes for railway? (I though about using AutoCAD because I guess it is the best software for this purpose. I also thought about Visio but I guess AutoCAD is better choice. And I also heard about local solution eplan.pl). Can you also suggest me any tutorials about AutoCAD for railway solutions? I need to create things like these: http://images43.fotosik.pl/171/04a4d0ce63e7f56f.jpg or http://images44.fotosik.pl/171/1793674140aa9e13.jpgGreetings!

I didn't heard something for railways ... I'm curios if somebody it's indicate you a software...Good luck

You can also create special linetypes using shape files also to make your simple design.  As long as it is simple lines or Polylines (No Hatches) in Express tools you can create linetypes.
