On30, 5 scale inches (0.1" /2.5mm) thick pre-gapped, copper cladded PC Board Crossties are designed to match the height of the wood ties used for On30 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.

  • 5 scale inches (0.1" /2.5mm) thick - matches On30 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 21 ties.

    Dealing with the Fast Tracks company is so easy and efficient. Updated communications and progress reports. Easy transaction and fast delivery, even half way around the world. Their track laying systems put the professionalism into the hobbyists display. I must highly recommend this product and company.
