      I am currently building #6, #8, and #10 Z-scale turnouts with ME
      code 40 rail. I am attempting to handlay a 5' x 7' layout, and was
      wondering what type of rail joiners should I use? And where is the
      best place to purchase them from?

      MTL Z-scale joiners are a tad bit too big for code 40 rail.

      Help...

          Hello Eric,
          You will find code 40 rail joiners in the current 2004
          Walther.s "N&Z Model Railroad Reference Book",
          under Track & Accessories, Micro Engineering Co,
          page 124, column 2.

          Order from your hobby shop or with Walther's Inc.
          directly.

          That should help.

            Yes I am using the fast track jigs... I have #6, #8, #10, and #12 in N scale, along with #10 (#6 and #8 will be ordered soon) in Z scale. Highly recommended!

              scale.

              Highly recommended! They work flawlessly. It's really all about
              soldering technique. I've built at least 200 turnouts now
              (including 'by-hand' curved and doubleslips). I also recommend
              getting a .010" or .015" dia. solder.

              I have a couple pics in the photo section under Eric's Pics.

                There is an excellent review of the Fast Tracks jigs in the July/August issue of N Scale Railroading. It looks easy enough to do. Mike in San Antonio TEXAS!
