TwistTies are cut from very pliable Baltic Birch plywood custom sawn in Finland specifically for Fast Tracks. The wood grain runs perpendicular to the rails with ties that are scale NA thick and NA wide and will match all popular commercially available wood ties and flextrack.
Each TwistTie can be used to construct one HO scale, #7, hand turnout using code 70, 83 or 100 rail and are designed to work with Micro Engineering small spikes (Part #30-106).
If you order Fast Tracks TwistTies, we highly recommend that you consider purchasing a matching Frog Helper soldering jig and PointForm tool. This will make the construction of the frog and switch points much easier. You may also want to consider adding a bundle of PC Board ties (for the throwbar) to your order. If you are building curved turnouts the rail will need to be pre-formed. Our Rail Roller bending tool will make this easy. All of these items can be added to your cart from the Accessories & Optional items list below.
