HO, 1/32" (0.031" / 0.8mm) 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 remaining ties are filled in with wood ties.

When painted, the PC Board ties will become nearly invisible, blending in with the wood ties. While some sizes of CopperHead PC board ties are not as high as standard wood ties this will not be an issue. Once soldered to rail, the thinner PC board ties will simply "float" between the wood ties, the space is hidden when the track is ballasted

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.

To speed up the process of cutting the PC board ties to length, check out our TieBreaker tie cutting tools!

Sold on a fret of 31 ties.

The item is high quality like all other fast track items however it turns out I may not want to use it. It was recommended for n scale code 40 turnout construction for a wider throw bar. However it turns out that you can't use the jig to install the wider width PC board (doesn't fit the jig slot) and if installed outside the jig it is not a direct fit onto the quickstick tie strip - the tie bar header ties will need to be removed or widened. So I suggest using them for their intended purpose unless you want to put in a little more effort to get it installed.
