Anyone know a way to create with a software DUPLO train track layout?

The only thing I found is: http://www.anyrail.com/index_en.html

It's a bit overkill for what I need and it's $US60, although the limited version can be used free.

LEGO has a track planner for non DUPLO track. http://www.lego.com/en-us/city/trains/track-planner

If I can't find something, I'll probably try to do it myself (I have a background of tools programmer in video game industry)

  • I've used a program called WinRail that again is probably overkill for what you need, but was great for me with Brio, HO/OO and Scalextric. I know it has some LEGO elements in it, I'll check tonight if it has DUPLO as well... Jan 24, 2014 at 14:53

    Rather belated response - No, my WinRail10 instance only had LEGO Trains and LEGO 9V Trains, but I think the points were off in both of those - at least, they don't match the points I've floating around somewhere. Feb 20, 2014 at 22:28
  • I asked question on here about Lego System track layout, I've 1st type blue rails. The points like 2× straight with 1 end having 2 track side by side. Later = points like part of circle with straight tangent. So need to know what Duplo points are like, then 1 of System track software should do. Jan 23 at 13:19
  • See has both parallel & curved out points, 2 sizes track length, like more advance than System rails? Jan 26 at 17:54

I would recommend BlueBrick, which is a versatile LEGO layout editor by Alban Nanty.

Apperently it has Duplo parts too, so I believe it should meet your needs. It can actually do much more for your layout planning needs (including modular tables if your club has some, for example), so maybe you'll consider it overkill as well, but since it's specifically made for LEGO layout I think you should be hapy with it.

Disclaimer: I have never used it for Duplo myself - if you do, feel free to share your experience with us in a comment.

You can use RailModeller Express or RailModeller Pro on macOS. Both feature LEGO tracks (regular and Duplo):

mayTracks - Lego Duplo Track Creator

A bit late - but there is an app for Windows and/or MAC to create DUPLO tracks with most known DUPLO bricks. I tested it and it works nice. In minutes and with a view clicks - I created large track plans. There is a PDF export too.
