You need to show all the line shapes you are using.

You should have the main line shape for your tracks, and a rectangle that tells the loft tool what thickness and width the tracks will be, this is the shape you click when lofting your tracks. Just look back through the tutorial you will figure it out. If you need more help let me know, I've been planning on making a vid tut for this, there is a trick or two that aren't explained in this tut by D-Fast that will help some new comers out. This tut is the best out there for tracks.

Hmm, in this screenshot i see the track outline spline in the foreground , but no tooth spline ? the tooth spline should be a triangle with the base left out (like an upside down V ) . Now select your track outline spline, goto 'Loft' and apply the the tooth spline by selecting 'Use Shape'
