A well-built crossing is always a great focal point on any layout, but building a crossing by hand without jigs is one of the more difficult challenges in tracklaying. Using a Fast Tracks crossing fixture will ensure the resulting track is very precise and trouble-free.

Crossings have many angles, and using our filing jigs with an assembly fixture will ensure all those angles are accurate. Now you can build O code 148, 14°° crossings that not only look great, but will completely eliminate track related derailments and frustration. Fast Tracks assembly fixtures will help you build high-quality hand laid track that:

  • Is Highly Accurate - Build crossings that stay in perfect gauge - permanently
  • Performs Perfectly - Eliminates track related derailments
  • Is Economical - Build hundreds of crossings with one fixture
  • Is Easy To Build - No special skills are needed
  • Can Be Built Quickly - Build a crossing in a few hours!
  • Looks Great! - Get results that rival even the most experienced modelers
  • Lets You Work in Comfort - Build trackwork at your workbench
  • Is NMRA Compliant - Will work with any NMRA compliant equipment

If you order a Fast Tracks assembly fixture, we highly recommend that you consider purchasing a matching PointForm filing tool. This will make constructing the multiple frog points required for a crossing much easier. In addition to code 148 rail, you will also need to purchase matching 0.0625" (1.6mm), (7 scale inches) thick, O CopperHead PC board turnout ties manufactured by Fast Tracks. To finish off your trackwork, add our matching QuickSticks to your order. These laser-cut wood ties will make finishing turnouts a snap, glue the full set of pre-cut ties to the turnout, and it's complete! We also offer traditional single piece wood turnout ties as well.
