About

Following the success of finetrax bullhead rail flexi track and turnout kits (www.britishfinescale.com), we are now raising funds to Create flat bottom rail turnouts!

Along with the usual features of finetrax turnouts, the new 'Code 40 Flat Bottom Rail Concrete Sleeper Turnouts' will feature - Prototypical 'AV', 'BV', 'CV', 'DV', 'EV' & 'FV' formations, type 'V' normal baseplates, type 'PV' sliding baseplates & type 'CV' check rail baseplates.

Finally prototypically long modern turnouts up to 400mm long!

In time many formations will be released in various sizes/length including diamonds and crossovers.

The main part of the funding will go towards tooling of the plastic injection moulded 'V', 'PV' & 'CV' type baseplates that hold the flat bottom rail to the sleeper/timber base. It will also fund tooling/rubber moulds being produced to make the new cast crossings.

Backers whom have pledged for a turnout kit(s) will receive their choice of either 'AV7', 'CV10' or 'EV15' formation in either left or right hand that requires assembly. Backers may message me requesting which size/hand they require.

Many thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

The main design work has been done, we simply need support to commence tooling. We are using the same tool maker whom made the tools for the bullhead rail chairs and flexi track, he also made the concrete plain line flexi track tool.

The tool maker is ready to to start work on the tool as soon as I give him the go, and it will only take him a couple weeks to have samples ready.

We will be able to fulfil rewards end October/Beginning of November.
