Switch Ties and Tie Strips
Important if buying tie strips for older Llagas Creek rail: The rail profile of Llagas Creek rail changed in the past when under different ownership. That rail's base was wider than the base of our current rail and will not fit in our current tie strips. Please measure the width of your rail to confirm it will fit. Rail with approx. a 5mm or 0.197 inch wide base will fit our currently produced tie strips. We do not carry any of the older tie strips that fit the wider previous generation of Llagas Rail.
Llagas Creek Railways offers individual tie strips in 2 popular styles that fit all of our Code 215 and Code 250 rail types. All our tie strips are injection molded plastic with high end UV stabilizers for use outdoors.
Our 1:20.3 scale "narrow gauge look" ties measure 9" long x 0.3" high x 0.4" wide. Tie strips come in 9" lengths and have 8 ties per strip. Ties are spaced at 10 to the foot and slightly offset side to side for that real "narrow gauge" look. Although we designed this tie strip for 1:20.3 scale, many of our customers think it looks great with their 1:22.5 (G) scale trains as well. These ties accept our code 215 and 250 narrow base rail in cast on prototype looking tie plates with random spike heads.
Our 1:32 scale "standard gauge" ties measure 5" (8.5 Ft. scale) in length. Height and width are correctly scaled at .22" x .28" ( 7" x 9" ) Tie spacing is 20 to the foot. Our 1:32 Standard Gauge tie strips come in 5 inch lengths and have 8 ties per strip. These ties accept our code 215 and 250 narrow base rail. Tie plate detail is scaled from the prototype. This is the only accurately scaled U.S. prototype track available for 1:32 scale.
Please note: We no longer offer black "G" tie strips.
