Lay and fix track

fixing trackLaying and fixing track doesn’t seem difficult. But then you try it. It’s surprising how many problems can be avoided with the benefit of hindsight.

Here’s the technique I’ve developed over the years that’ll hopefully save you time, effort and frustration.

If you’ve ever locked your N or OO railway track in place only to find your trains judder, stop or derail on bends or points you’ll understand the frustration and annoyance of poorly laid track.

Equally, it’s much harder to secure track in place without damaging the sleepers, rails and electrical connections than many novices expect.

Here’s a technique I’ve learnt and now use for stress free track laying and fixing.

Temporarily Secure and Test

Having sections of track that aren’t aligned or connect correctly will cause all kinds of problems later and aren’t easy to correct once the track is permanently fixed. Juddering locos and even derailing trains can result on misaligned track.

The solution to this is to mark up the track position and first secure it temporarily – I used double-sided tape.

Then test your trains run smoothly, prove the electrical connections work and your trains navigate joins, points and bends without problem.

If they don’t it’s easy to pull up track, correct problems and retry.

Screw Between Sleepers Before Pinning

After the track is correctly aligned lock it down more permanently. For this track pins are ideal but sections will often move while knocking the pins in so I first further secure it in place with small screws between the sleepers to hold track in place during the pinning.


Many tutorials and guides across the web are for OO or H0 gauge track laying and won’t apply on smaller N gauge tracks. The tips here are will however work for N, OO and HO.


The screw should fit between two sleepers but have a head wide enough to overlap the sleepers and so hold them in place.

Place a small piece of cardboard with a V cut into it to between the sleepers and screw head so as not to damage the sleepers while tightening the screw.

The picture above shows the track held down with double sided sticky tape and the screw being inserted with the card sleeper protector in place.

With the track now securely in place take your rolling stock for further trial runs to catch any electrical or join problems that have crept in as the track moved while the screws were inserted.
