Part of the Fast Tracks Infinite™ Track System, this O Micro Engineering code 148, straight track Assembly Fixture can be used to construct straight lengths of branchline trackwork quickly and easily. Even though this fixture is only 16.5" (419mm) long, it can be used to make unlimited lengths of perfectly straight track! Once a section of track is constructed in the fixture, it is simply moved over and the next section added to it. By staggering the rail joints a single length of track with minimal rail joints can be built to any length needed.
Trackwork built using Fast Tracks fixtures is NMRA compliant and will easily out-perform any store bought track! No special skills are needed and results are guaranteed.
Fast Tracks assembly fixtures will help you build high quality hand laid track that:
- Is Highly Accurate - Build straight branchline trackwork that stays in perfect gauge - permanently

In addition to code 148 rail, you will also need to purchase matching 0.15" (3.8mm), (7 scale inches) thick, pre-gapped, O CopperHead PC board Crossties manufactured by Fast Tracks for curved and straight trackwork. Our PC Board crossties match the thickness of the wood ties and are pre-gapped for DC and DCC compatibility.
To finish off your trackwork, add our matching QuickSticks Crosstie Strips to your order. These laser cut, wood tie strips makes finishing straight trackwork a snap!
