You can either make your own bedding track segments with better Tillig turnouts (EW3) or use Star Line bedding track with HP rails and turnouts :smile:

Me too. But the layout I was talking about is a coal mining area including some industry.
In fact it has almost the same tracking plan but it seems that you have a great country on the table..

True enough, but I believe Tillig most likely specified that everything in the new bedding track match the geometry of their existing track pieces to insure compatibility throughout their line. Track with built-in roadbed is very good for beginners and train sets, which is probably why they haven't made any large radius turnouts yet.

Not only that. I'm using the bedding track in my staging yards. It goes down quick, has a nice finished look for the sections that won't have scenery and can be modified and used again without any damage.
