N scale, 1/32" (0.031" / .8mm) thick CopperHead PC Board Ties are produced using Fast Track's unique routing process that allows us to offer ties with a very clean edge, precise dimensions and are always perfectly flat. The copper cladding is paper thin, allowing you to cut the copper with a small file or rotary tool to isolate the rails. Both sides of the tie are copper-cladded.

Copper cladded fiberglass PC Board ties are used at strategic points in hand laid trackwork to hold the rails in gauge permanently. The PC Board ties are soldered into place with wood ties added to complete the trackwork.

Designed to span trackwork built on 1-1/8" centers (15 scale feet) track centers, our N Crossover ties are specifically cut with extra long ties to allow a single tie to span both tracks. On a crossover, having one tie span the width of 2 tracks is standard practice. These ties are typically used in single or double crossovers.

When painted, the PC Board ties will become nearly invisible, blending in with the wood ties.

Using our printable tie templates as a guide, cut the ties to the lengths you need for your turnout. While specifically designed to fit all Fast Tracks assembly fixtures, they can also be used for any hand constructed trackwork.

Sold on a fret of 45 ties.

    I love the fact that Fast Tracks cares about our hobby so much that I can get all of the track building products I need to build beautiful, durable hand laid track in my scale which happens to be Nn3. Where else can you go for such a quality and easy to use system. I have been using your products for years and am a customer for life. Thank you ! Daniel Richardson Clovis, CA USA

    I am using this product to replace the crossbar(s) on my HO scale ME turnouts. These N scale PCB ties, when filed down to 1/16" width are more prototypical looking and work as well as the 'stock' throwbars. The PCB material is robust and easy to drill for the .0125 throw-rod from my Rapido Railcrew switch machines. Everything works and looks great! Thank you for your fine product(s) cheers Fred

    PCB strip seems to be getting hard to find so tried these. I like the extreme accuracy of the etch. Great product.
