I am in the situation that I need code 55 track and turnouts to continue with my layout. I am considering using and alternative. I have looked at ME track and honestly I can not tell the difference between the two. In fact, I was at the local hobby store and they had a few bundles of track. I accidently picked up a bundle of each and the only difference that I saw was the price. What concerned me more is the turnouts. I have read that ME's turnouts are/were not that good. Has anybody used them recently and what were your results? I really want to continue on, but don't want to waste money.
