N-Nn3 dual gauge, right-hand turnout QuickSticks with the narrow gauge on the left side have been specially designed for trackwork built with Fast Tracks dual gauge assembly fixtures. QuickSticks laser cut ties lets you construct fully complete, ready-to-run dual gauge turnouts right at your workbench!
Using our track assembly fixtures you build what we call a "skeleton". This skeleton will have PC Board ties located at key locations to keep the piece of trackwork in gauge. To finish the trackwork, our Laser Cut QuickSticks are used. With a single step all the remaining wood ties are added to the pre-built skeleton and the trackwork is ready to be installed.
Now anyone can build inexpensive, hand laid trackwork that:
- Looks Great! - With realistic looking trackwork on wood ties
- Is Easy To Build - With results that rival even the most experienced modelers
- Performs Perfectly - Completely eliminates derailments
- Looks Great! - Get results that rival even the most experienced modelers
- Lets You Work in Comfort - Build trackwork at your workbench
QuickSticks are cut from Baltic Birch plywood custom sawn in Finland specifically for Fast Tracks. The wood grain runs perpendicular to the rails. The ties are 7" thick and 9" wide (scale). They will match all popular commercially available wood ties, including wood ties available from Fast Tracks.
Gluing QuickSticks to trackwork.
QuickSticks laser cut ties are designed to be glued to the rails using using Pliobond glue. This type of adhesive will provide a very reliable bond that will increase in strength over time.
