Mark's correct the crosshatched ties are where I will use PC board ties. Planning on just build the turnout on top a printout of a Fasttrack template. I have frog and point jigs for code 40and 55 from my N scale Fasttrack stuff.

Next up is laser cut some track gauges from acrylic and then get some PC Ties.


So....the crosshatched ties are thinner, not as high as the regular ties (to allow the PC ties to be glued to the thinner ties) or are the crosshatched ties removed and replaced with PC ties:?: :?:

Very much impressed with the product and use of the laser technology.


I will cut out the tie to allow room for the PC tie

It's been a few weeks since I posted any progress. Here are some photos of what I have gotten too.

I tried making some track gauges out of some acrylic with my laser.

So I have just laid the ME code 55 rail on top of the ties, to see what it all will look like, very happy with the results.

I am going to try and start the base for this switching layout next week, so I can glue track and ties
