HO straight QuickSticks crosstie strips for Gantlet track provide the modeler with a fast and efficient method for finishing straight lengths of soldered Fixed Gantlet track built with a Fast Tracks assembly fixture.
Each laser-cut strip, part of the Fast Tracks Infinite™ Track System, is a lattice of wood ties glued directly to the roadbed and designed to accommodate the soldered PC Board ties.
Strips can be linked together using a TieClip connector to form strips of any length. Strips can also be connected to Fast Tracks Gauntlet QuickSticks and can be shortened if necessary.
Ties on our Gantlet QuickSticks are set to Mainline spacing (20″ center to center) and are ten scale feet wide to accommodate the parallel routes of the gauntlet track.
The skeleton trackwork (the rail and PC Board Ties) built in a Fast Tracks assembly fixture is simply set on top of the QuickSticks Strips and spiked or glued into place. Empty areas are strategically located along the strip to accommodate the PC Board Ties used for building trackwork in assembly fixture.
QuickSticks Gauntlet Fixed Crosstie Strips offers incredible convenience and accuracy when used with Fast Tracks fixture built trackwork.

Gantlet Fixed Crosstie Strips are cut from Baltic Birch plywood custom sawn specifically for Fast Tracks. The ties are 0.1” (2.5mm) 9 scale inches wide, 1.38” (35.1mm) 10 scale feet long and 0.08” (2mm), 7 scale inches thick, and will match commercially available wood ties and flextrack.
Each strip includes a TieClip connector for connecting the strip to another crosstie strip. You can order additional TieClips here.
The QuickSticks on this page are the drilled version. We offer Quicksticks with either drilled or non-drilled wood ties. The version you choose is a matter of personal preference. The non-drilled version has trackwork fastened to it with Pliobond adhesive. Plionbond will provide a solid bond for a lifetime as its bond increases over time and is very reliable. Spiking onto our drilled QuickSticks will provide a mechanical bond that some modelers prefer, but requires a bit more time to install. Not all ties are pre-drilled, only ties at key locations to allow the turnout to be fastened in place.
