    This is a jig/fixture, actually seven of them, that will hold the ties in place for gluing under a straight turnout that was created using a printable template. I was using a tape method shown ( HERE ) but these make the task much more enjoyable. I created the spacing for the ties using a Fast Tracks printable template for a code 55 straight turnout.

    Unlike the fixtures for a curved turnout where the ties are on a shallow arc all of the ties in these fixtures are parallel to each other.

    If you haven't seen the page before this one please go back to it ( HERE ) to see how to use these fixtures.

    As you can see above there are fixtures that will hold 2 to 8 ties. Pick the appropriate one for the area of the turnout you are filling. Again this is covered ( HERE ).

    The ties are N scale Fast Tracks Mt. Albert turnout ties. Be sure and place them in the fixture with the wide side of the tie flat on the fixture.

    You can find the files to print this on my thingiverse.com account ( HERE ).... and on my site here....
