Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative adhesive to pliobond? I have been using it per fast track instructions to adhere ties to turnouts.

Thanks,
Mark

I prefer Barge cement. I get mine from a local hardware store.

I estimate I have about 5 pounds of coupler springs somewhere in the vicinity of my workbench.

Any reason why one should not use a CA of some sort? Does anyone know what adhesive Lytco uses?

CA will be too rigid - you want something that has some give when cured. Once installed and even after ballasting, the track will flex and move some with humidity (and some due to temperature). Pliobond and Barge each have flexibility after curing.
