    These are a real convenient way to build hand made track work. It would take ages to do this on your own. Why waste the time when this product is available and very uniform manufacturing. Too easy.

    I am pleased with the quality and consistency of the ties. I also appreciate having full profile ties as common ballasting practice in the steam-era ’40s with jointed rail left much of the tie ends exposed.

    When I started my third bag I found that some (about 10%) were slightly long. Long enough that they won’t fit in the slots in the tie rack (or worse yet, they won’t come out of the slot easily enough). Until this bag I haven’t seen any problems — hope they get this one fixed.

    First time using the HO ties and Fast Tracks. The ties are incredible as was the fast professional service we received from the Fast Tracks staff. We are now lifetime customers! Thanks for the great product and the phenomenal service. Dave

    You would wonder why rate something s simple as ties. I appreciate the uniformity in dimensions and the way that they took the stain. They are packaged well and readily available. I will definitely purchase these from FastTracks in the future.

    I purchased in August this year but am only now getting to have a first hand look in using them. I do not know if I have received a bad batch, but all I can say is I am very disappointed. Consistency of the dimensions is just not there. The width seems right at present, the thickness is mostly there with the odd one cut thinner and some whose thickness is variable (the saw hasn’t gone all the way), but the biggest issue is the length; they vary from a scale 7′ to 8’6″. I am going through measuring the length of each one and putting into piles to see if I can get enough 8’6″ to do my small section of mainline. I can use the rest in my branch/industrial area. Unless I can be sure that what I received was not what is normally supplied, I doubt I would buy again.

    Just what was ordered. They are great , to scale and easily tinted to show new or used ties.

    Recently bought a bag of HO 8″6″ long crossties or so I thought. The bag had over half of the ties 8 feet even. A lot of them was 7″ 6″ also. I stained them without realizing this and discovered the mismatch in length afterwards. This is unacceptable as I am hand-laying main line trackage. Where is quality control ????

    Perfect in every respect, exactly as represented.

    Excellent quality, clear grain, nice smooth finish, will make for great looking track work.

    Great product, glad you guys offer ties as it was rather hard to find an online company that sold them at a reasonable price.

    These cross ties are great! They hold spikes very well and are pretty uniform. Much simpler than trying to find raw materials and cutting yourself.

    I have been using these ties for years. Great product and works well.

    These are my go to ties. The consistency of the size, ability to take stain and look realistic are features that make these a great choice. The customer service from everyone at Fast Tracks just adds to the value. I have been buying my ties from Tim and company for several years now.
