Building an accurate crossing has long been a challenge in our hobby. Not anymore with Diamond Line Crossing Kits!
Fast Tracks Diamond Line Crossing Kits make the job of building a good looking, accurate crossing much simpler. Precision
cast parts and matching laser cut ties work together to ensure quick construction. Each of the castings are designed to press
into the laser cut ties, automatically locating all the parts and electrical isolation gaps. The parts are simply pressed and
glued in place. We recommend using
Pliobond for this.
Innovative pockets in the ends of the castings allow for matching rail to slip into the casting. Rail of any length can be
soldered to the crossing castings for smooth appearance and operation.
We highly recommend using
Frog Juicers to control the
polarity of the frogs in crossings. They make wiring and operating a layout with crossings a snap! A quad crossing has 8 frogs
that will need to be switched, requiring 1 Hex Frog Juicer and 1 Dual Frog Juicer
In addition to the castings and laser cut ties, the Diamond Line kit also includes all the bits and pieces needed to
successfully build a crossing, the first time in about an hour or two.
This kit contains enough product to build one quad diamond crossing.
Included in the kit are:
Individual frog castings and guard rail castings - mounted on laser cut bases to aid
in polishing and cleaning
Matching precision laser cut ties - precisely matched to the castings
Copperhead PC board ties - PC board ties are used to anchor the rail in place
Enough matching rail to build one quad crossing - rail is pre-cut to length
3 320 grit sanding blocks - laser cut sanding blocks are used to polish the tops of
3 600 grit sanding blocks
Wirebrush - a steel wirebrush makes quick work of polishing the raw castings,
This crossing is also available as a single diamond and a double diamond kit.
