HO, 1/16" (0.062" / 1.6mm) thick CopperHead PC Board Ties are produced using Fast Tracks own unique routing process that allows us to offer ties that have a very clean edge, precise dimensions and are always perfectly flat. The copper cladding is paper thin allowing you to cut the copper with a small file or rotary tool to isolate the rails. Both sides of the tie are copper cladded.

Copper cladded fiberglass PC Board ties are used at strategic points in hand laid trackwork to permanently hold the rails in gauge. The PC Board ties are soldered into place with wood ties added to complete the trackwork.

Designed to span trackwork built on 2.5" centers (18 scale feet) track centers, our HO Crossover ties are specifically cut with extra long ties to allow a single tie to span both tracks. On a crossover, it is standard practice to have one tie span the width of 2 tracks. These ties are typically used in single or double crossovers.

When painted the PC Board ties will become nearly invisible, blending in with the wood ties.

Using our printable tie templates as a guide, cut the ties to the lengths you need for your turnout. While specifically designed to fit all Fast Tracks assembly fixtures, they can also be used for any hand constructed trackwork.

Sold on a fret of 27 ties.

I used item to modify older Atlas turnouts for DCC use. Worked great.

Well packaged, the ties were very cleanly cut. These were ordered on Fast Track's suggestion as I needed long ties for some 3 way stub turnouts I'm making. The ties are more than long enough for my purposes. Very helpful people, if you don't find what you are looking for just contact them and they can probably accommodate your needs. I have purchased a number of items from Fast Tracks in the past and have always found their products to be of the highest quality. They may be slightly higher priced than the competition, but like the man said, "If you want quality oats you have to pay a fair price. If you don't mind oats that have been though the horse once, well they come a little cheaper.
