    I have never used it, but I have not heard anyone ever say anthing positive about it. Better to stick with Atlas, Peco, ME, Unitrack, etc, I think... Jim

    The basic track is not too bad, but the turnouts are terrible from my experience. The continuity through the "switch" is very questionable. The contacts are touchy...a few bumps and they become sporadic.

    M.P. Flex Track

    LR&BRR,

    I have 4 or 5 full length sections I used in a staging yard, works fine. BUT, cosmetically it leaves a bunch to be desired and I can't really say how well it holds gauge when being bent into a curve radius.
