Cool idea.  I need to make a z scale module and instead of Marklin or MT code 60, I am going to handlay with the fasttracks setup and code 40.

The Tie Racks are really easy to use.

I have a set of 4 that I use on my layout. I have the Mainline and Branchline spacing.




The N and Z guys will really like this product.

How does this work for curved or turnout trackage? I'm interested in a lot of fast-tracks stuff but need more info.

For the turnouts they have the "Quick sticks" which are laser cut turnout tie templates the same thickness as their wood ties.

And yes it does work on curves as you can see in my photo.
Just put the ties in the tie rack, add a thin section of masking tape down the center line and add to your roadbed.
