    Hi,

    I have the possibility of buying some Model Power flex track. But, I've only ever bought Peco before. Please can someone who has seen both give me some comments / opinions of it. I can't see the track, as it's in another city, but if I buy, it'll be posted to me.

    Thanks

    I've used MP and Atlas flextrack. Use the MP flextrack for long straight stretches but not on corners. :p :p Just my 2 cents worth.

    Stepping down from Peco to Model power track is like selling your BMW and buying a used datsun.

    And just what does this mean??? Are you saying that I give up a fancy paint job in exchange for better reliability? That replacement parts are easier to find? There are more dealers in my home town??? This comment gave no value.

    Describe:
    What your experience with MP flex track is.

    Contrast:
    With your experience with Peco flex track.
