Z, 1/32" (0.031" / .8mm) thick pre-gapped, copper cladded PC Board Crossties are designed to match the height of the wood ties used for Z 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.

  • 1/32" (0.031" / .8mm) thick – matches Z 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 51 ties.

    Would have given 5 stars but had an issue with the tolerances on a few ties. Terry identified the problem and immediately replace the flawed ties. Great service!
