    I need some help with x-trak please. I am trying to put a helix on my track plan, but I can not find the end points of the helix track to set the elevations and connect it to the other tracks. Any advice is definately welcome.

    I've never messed with the helix function much in XTrkCad, but it looks like it's simply represented with a circle. You create the entrance and exit whever you wish by using the "Join Two Tracks" tool. It will reset the "angular seperation" after you've made both the entrance and the exit.
