Some nice details in there. Why then use what looks like Peco code 83?

 

Best, Pete.

What would be your choice then Pete, Micro Engineering code 55? Im guessing for pointwork that Fast Tracks would be the top choice.

ME flex is looks great but Ive never been able to get a good curve from it though. I ended up using the 4 or so bits of it I had for staging use.

Given what seems to be a modern era, class 1 railroad, with heavy loads, code 83 is the scale size of the 135 Lb rail now typical for all the main and otherwise heavily used tracks. Maybe a drop to code 70 for the lighter spurs, that would not be upgraded yet, or ever.  Equivalent rail to code 55 would probably have been relaid decades ago.
