    I'm assuming yes, but with these two brands of track play nicely together?

    I'm thinking of using MW concrete tie flex track in the mountain pass area of my layout, with regular Peco Code 55 (or Atlas maaaaaaybe) elsewhere on the layout.

    Anyone have experience with these connecing these two track brands together?

    Only with On30 track. They can be connected but the tie sizes are different between Micro Engineering and PECO. The foregoing doesn't help much with N scale.

    Shucks. Maybe I should just go with ME track all around, heh.

    thanks for the info!

    Edit: A few folks at posted abuot using ME and Atlas Code 55, so maybe I can use that to in place of the peco.

    There is a big differance between the two. Micro-Enginerring and Peco. ME is true code 55, while Peco is really code 80 that is sunk into the ties, so there is only .055 of the rail showing above the ties. (IE code55)
    You can connect the two, but you will have to fab some type of rail joiner.
