I am now using Peco-55, flex and turnouts. Sturdy, re-usable, more variety than Atlas right now.[:-paperbag]

Hello everyone, Newbie here... Not to MR just to this forum.
I've tried Atlas & Shinohara in the past with success but I always liked the look of RailCraft 55 & 40 but could never find any. Was just about to go with Atlas 55 when out of the blue for auction on ebay was 60 pcs. of Code 55 flex, 20 pcs. of code 40 flex, 55 pcs. of code 55 rail, 50 pcs. of code 40 rail & 3 lh switches code 55 All in RailCraft. Needless to say it will work out just fine filling up my 8' x 11' x 10' N Scale road.
Did I mention I like RailCraft???

Hi, Dave! I use Railcraft Code 55, even though it is the most expensive track out there. It is always the same and holds its shape around curves better than any flex track on the market. It also looks great!![:-eyebrows]

WOW! I can't believe nobody has mentioned Micro-Engineering Code 55 in N-Scale. That is what I roll on EXCLUSIVELY! Even on all the hidden parts of my layout. Their flex track keeps it's memory so you can have perfect alignments. It does however cost a bit more but it's realistic appearence and awesome construction is incredible. Not to mention, unlike Atlas Code 55, you don't have to change all your rolling stock wheel sets to low profiles.

Atlas 80, cheaper then others, good to work with and easy to get because that's what everybody keeps in stock.

Hello Group,
I'm the new guy on the block so to speak, I think this might be my first post? I've used Atlas Code 80 on past layouts, but for my current layout I took the plunge and went Atlas Code 55. I hope Atlas continues to expand this line of "N" scale track, it looks great and is very strong considering it's small size.

Take care,

Rich S.

Time and availability dictate much at this point for me.I have a billion miles of atlas c80 and matching yardmasters nightmare of switches.
If i were to do it all over again,I really like the look of Handlaid but Micro engineerings c55 looks almost as good.Anybody wanna trade a few boxes of ME c55 for my Atlas C-80?? :)

I was going to post this question today, I am just beginning to contemplate an N scale layout and I'm thinking about what track to buy. I like the look of the Kato Unitrack, but I may go to the Peco website and see what they have to offer. It looks like the Peco Code 55 is durable and can run anything. How are the turnouts?

Hand laying track is something I want to try ... but I barely have time to glue down Atlas code 80.
