Specially designed for trackwork built with Fast Tracks assembly fixtures, QuickSticks laser cut ties let you construct fully complete, ready-to-run Nn3 turnouts right at your workbench!

Using our track assembly fixtures, you build what we call a "skeleton." This skeleton will have PC Board ties located at key locations to keep the piece of trackwork in gauge. To finish the trackwork, our Laser Cut QuickSticks are used. With a single step, all the remaining wood ties are added to the pre-built skeleton, and the trackwork is ready to be installed.

Now anyone can build inexpensive, hand laid trackwork that:

  • Looks Great! - With realistic-looking trackwork on wood ties
  • Is Easy To Build - With results that rival even the most experienced modelers
  • Performs Perfectly - Build hundreds of turnouts with one fixture
  • Can Be Built Quickly - Build a fully complete turnout in less than an hour!
  • Looks Great! - Get results that rival even the most experienced modelers
  • Lets You Work in Comfort - Build trackwork at your workbench

QuickSticks are cut from Baltic Birch plywood custom sawn in Finland specifically for Fast Tracks. Like the prototype, the wood grain on our QuickSticks ties runs perpendicular to the rails. The ties are 0.04" (1mm), 6 scale inches thick and 0.06" (1.5mm) 9 scale inches wide. They will match all popular commercially available wood ties, including wood ties available from Fast Tracks. The ties will also match all popular commercial track, and trackwork completed with QuickSticks will be compatible with these products.

Gluing QuickSticks in place

Gluing QuickSticks to trackwork.

QuickSticks laser cut ties are designed to be glued to the rails using using Pliobond glue. This type of adhesive will provide a very reliable bond that will increase in strength over time.

    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
