Three way turnouts are great space savers, especially in rail yards where there never seems to be enough space to fit in everything we need. Quite a bit of space can be saved by working in a Three Way turnout to your design. Our Three Way turnouts are not any more difficult to construct than a standard turnout and only take a little longer to build. Fast Tracks Standard Three Way turnouts are a "lapped" design, meaning it's made of two turnouts slightly in front of each other as opposed to a symmetrical three-way.
Due to the length of the finished track, this fixture is supplied in two pieces. The two sections need to be fastened to a piece of material such as plywood or hardboard. Use a lengths of rail in the rail grooves to align the sections, then screw into place using the holes provided in the fixture.
Use our Three Way turnout fixture to build switches that not only look great, but will completely eliminate track related derailments and frustration.
