Three-way turnouts are great space savers, especially in rail yards where there never seems to be enough space to fit everything we need. Quite a bit of space can be saved by working in a Three-Way turnout to your design.
This three way turnout fixture is a Mirrored version of our original three way turnout. Refer to the product image above to ensure you are selecting the one that is right for your design.
Our Three Way turnouts are not more difficult to construct than a standard turnout and only take a little longer to build. Fast Tracks Standard Three-Way turnouts are a “lapped” design, meaning it’s made of two turnouts slightly in front of each other. Use our Three Way turnout fixture to build switches that look great and will eliminate track related derailments and frustration. Fast Tracks assembly fixtures will help you build high-quality hand laid track that:
- Is Highly Accurate – Build 3-ways that stay in perfect gauge – permanently
- Performs Perfectly – Eliminates track related derailments
- Is Economical – Build hundreds of 3-ways with one fixture
- Is Easy To Build – No special skills are needed
- Can Be Built Quickly – Build a 3-way in less than an hour!
- Looks Great! – Get results that rival even the most experienced modelers
- Lets You Work in Comfort – Build trackwork at your workbench
- Is Compliant – Will work with any compliant equipment
If you order a Fast Tracks assembly fixture, we highly recommend that you consider purchasing the matching Three Way PointForm and StockAid tool.

Step-by-step videos demonstrate how to build a complete switch using a Fast Tracks assembly fixture, PointForm, StockAid, and other tools.
Using The Fast Tracks PointForm Tool To Build Switchpoints
The PointForm tool is not only used to file Frog points. It can also be used to file perfect switch points as well. Here is how it works.
Using The Multi-Brush Solder Paste Applicator For Soldering Trackwork
The Multi-Brush makes applying just he right amount of solder flux quick and easy. You will also find it a handy brush to have around for general model construction as well.
Using The 35W Weller Soldering Iron For Model Railroad Trackwork
Using the right soldering iron to solder trackwork is critical to success. We recommend the 35 watt Weller pencil type soldering iron with the ST7 conical shaped soldering tip. Watch along as we demonstrate how to get the most from this soldering equipment.
Detail about the solder supplied by Fast Tracks for building all types of model trackwork.
Cutting Rail Gaps
We thought you might like this short video we produced showing the process of cutting rail gaps to isolate the frog in a Fast Tracks turnout electrically. This step is critical and can not be skipped. Otherwise, the track will have a dead short and can not be powered.
Painting Trackwork Slideshow
We are often asked if we have made a video on painting trackwork, and to date, we have not. Back in 2009, we produced a slideshow for MRH Magazine on how we finish turnouts, but it is no longer available from them, so we reproduced it and uploaded it here.
