Build your own turnouts (and track)

There is a company called Fast Tracks that makes great jigs for hand building turnouts, and I have built them in Z scale. Unfortunately they do not make jigs for G scale, but perhaps the techniques can be applied.

Here's a video from trainmasters showing a unique layout from the guy who makes the fast tracks jigs for making turnouts

I'm looking for more information on building techniques, many people have printed out the layout of the rails full scale, and then used it as a template to cut and fit rails. In this scale it is not so difficult, and inexpensive to try.



Below is an EXTENSIVE thread, WELL WORTH reading about a guy who made his own track and switches. What is really unique here is he takes you on the journey with all the different materials and techniques AND admits when things did and did not work.
