HOn3, 1/16" (0.062" / 1.6mm) thick pre-gapped, copper cladded PC Board Crossties are designed to match the height of the wood ties used for HOn3 scale straight and curved trackwork and are pre-gapped for DC and DCC compatibility.

Fast Tracks CopperHead PC Board ties are machined to shape rather than sheared or stamped, producing a perfectly flat tie with no twisting or warping and very clean, crisp edges. The copper cladding is applied to both sides of the tie with double isolation gaps cut close to the rail on one side, making it easy to disguise the gap during final finishing.

  • 1/16" (0.062" / 1.6mm) thick - matches HOn3 wood crossties
  • Pre-Gapped - eliminates the need to hand file the gaps into the ties
  • Double Gapped - with gaps cut close to the rail to help disguise them
  • Cut to length - no further preparation required
  • Machined, not stamped - perfectly flat with no twisting and clean edges

Sold on a fret of 37 ties.

  1. 5 out of 5

    I've been using PC board ties for over 30 years now. But the these "Copper Head" milled versions are the best idea yet! Clean and crisp with no twisting or splinters. Prep/clean up only takes seconds!

    Great product for setting the gauge of tracks permanently once soldered in place

    Same comments as with the standard gauge ties. Excellent product and the best way to keep rail in gauge by using when using plibond to secure rail by including 1 every 20” to 30” in conjunction with wood ties
