Do you want to have more prototypical looking track?
Then the Railway Laser Lines Sleeper Spacer Tool may just be the perfect tool that you’re looking for to help you with this task.
This is our BRAND-NEW 700mm sleeper tool*, so doing a yard of Peco track and helping with curves should now take even less time as this tool is aimed at speeding up that process. The tool is made from acrylic and due to its length and design, it may enable you to space sleepers out around 4th radius curves (common sense prevails here!)
*It is NOT designed to be flexed too much, so please DO NOT try bend this too much or try to use on sharp radius curves….it won’t work and we cannot accept any liability should you break/snap this tool.
Once you have cut all the sleepers on the track to individual ones, getting rid of the joining parts altogether, you will need to move the sleepers together and then slide them along to fit within each slot of the spacer tool. You can place the tool within the centre of the rails or alternatively do it on the outer sides.
It’s certainly worth testing out how to do this the best way you feel will help you on a spare piece of track.
There are a number of modellers who have done videos on sleeper spacing on YouTube so worth checking these out.
