# Installation

The tikz library is contained in the files:

• tikzlibrarytrackschematic.code.tex,
• tikzlibrarytrackschematic.topology.code.tex,
• tikzlibrarytrackschematic.trafficcontrol.code.tex,
• tikzlibrarytrackschematic.vehicles.code.tex,
• tikzlibrarytrackschematic.constructions.code.tex, and
• tikzlibrarytrackschematic.messures.code.tex.
These files should be copied wherever can find it, for example in your TEXMF folder. The library can then be loaded through the command usetikzlibrary{trackschematic} in any tex file.

# Usage

\documentclass[tikz]{standalone}
\usetikzlibrary{trackschematic}
\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}

\coordinate (A)   at (0,0);
\coordinate (B)   at (6,0);
\coordinate (T)   at (5,0);

\maintrack (A) -- (B);
\train[forward] at (T) label (train);

\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}
