In my opinion is Advanced Track for building a layout and Bedding Track for running trains on a carpet or table. In opposite to Kuehn has Tillig more variants in its rail geometry. Three different sizes of turnouts EW1, EW2 and EW3 and flexible turnout building kits for the last two. The advantage at Kuehn is the smaller height of the rails (1,8mm instead of 2,1 mm) and the better turnout geometry.

Hi Surovi

It depends what you plan to build. For a fix layout (module etc) I would not use the bedded tracks. They are perfect for the non permanent (carpet?) layouts.

Take care, if you have older rolling stock you may run into difficulties with Kuehn tracks. The old wheels have bigger flanges.

But only with the old plastic wheelsets (from Zeuke?). He will be starting in TT, so he hasn't 40 or 30 years old rolling stock.

Unfortunately not just the plastic wheels, those can be easily replaced ( has to be anyway), more serious problem appears with steam engines from the Zeuke age. We do not know what rolling stock he has.... :-)

I have nothing in TT scale so I believe I will not have anything like that, but who knows ...
Tillig will be. Advanced.
Thanks!
