At it again...more turnouts...

At it again...more turnouts... was created by ZRailFan
It occurs to me I raved about Fast Track's tools when I described creating a curved turnout, but if you've never seen the tools in action for a typical straight turnout (the fixtures for which Fast Tracks offers), my previous post might've been a bit confusing. So I took a step back and created a hand-laid #8 turnout, with description and images:

Apologies for the images. The fixture is shiny aluminum and my lack of photographic expertise shows. Hopefully you get an idea as to how the Fast Tracks tools work to provide you with outstanding turnouts every time. Not only do they look great, they perform outstandingly as well.

So if this topic interests you, as it does me, cheers! :woohoo:

It does interest me. I build Fastrack turnouts too. I build a 4.5 and a 6. I like how the locos go through them like they are not there.

Excellent! Can you post a picture of the #4.5? I've been curious to know what those look like.
