Welcome to our complete library of information videos. You are welcome to post and share any of our videos on your own website or blog.
All of these videos are also provided on the DVD that is included with your Fast Tracks order.
For even more videos, check out our new "After Hours Modeling" video series where you can watch Tim Warris build trackwork in a more informal setting.
These videos demonstrate the basic skills you will need for building trackwork with Fast Tracks tools.
There is also an excellent video that explains how the NMRA track standards actually work. While an understanding of the NMRA track standards is not necessary to build great running trackwork with our tools, the NMRA video provides an excellent overview of the NMRA standards and how track switches work.
This video provides information about the tools and supplies you will need for soldering trackwork, how to take care of your tools and how to get the most out of them. Tim Warris also demonstrates basic soldering techniques.
Tim demonstrates how to solder trackwork in a Fast Tracks assembly fixture using acid based solder flux and small diameter solder with a 35 watt pencil tip soldering iron. Watch the entire video for valuable tips to ensure soldering success.
How to solder trackwork in a Fast Tracks assembly fixture using SuperSafe solder flux. SuperSafe flux is a very low acid flux that is less corrosive than regular acid paste flux, but does require a bit of extra skill to use.
Pliobond contact cement is ideally suited for fastening QuickSticks wood ties to trackwork constructed using Fast Tracks fixtures and tools. This video demonstrates how to use Pliobond to create a permanent bond.
Used, abused, misused and just plain misunderstood, the NMRA standards have been unjustly blamed for many of the problems modelers have had over the years with with poor operating trackwork, where in fact the standards actually hold the key to building layouts that run both smoothly and reliably.
The Demystifying The NMRA Standards video is provided for modelers who want to learn more about how the MRA track standards work. The information provided in this video is not needed to build great running trackwork using Fast Tracks tools.
Using Fast Tracks Tools
Our complete library of videos that describe how to use each of the tools that we currently offer.
Hand laying infinite lengths of bullet straight, hand laid track is easy when you use an assembly fixture. Here we show you how Fast Tracks straight track assembly fixtures makes it possible right at your workbench.
We offer a complete line of pre-gapped, PC Board Crossties for building straight and curved trackwork. Pre-gapped PC Board crossties have a number of important features that are described in this video.
