Being new to this forum, I thought it would probably be safe to ask a question that has probably been answered already a thousand times, but does anyone know of a source for pc ties on which to solder HO code 83 rail. I would really like to try my hand at hand laying my own track, have bought Fast Tracks turnout jig, and haven't yet decided whether to glue or solder. The only thing I know for sure is that I doubt if I have enough patience to spike rail to ties!!! I not only like the look of hand laid track better, but the cost to buy track for even a medium size layout is becoming prohibitive. Besides, it just looks good! Thanks for any advice or recommendations you can offer.
