I'm looking to build my first track and I have really like the sounds of this digital stuff. Scorpious is expensive to use with a routed track and a few brands offer their own digital sets but none make all the things I want in a track.

Has anyone tried using plastic track pieces from a set and blending them with a routed track?

Thanks,

Marcus

There is also plenty of routed tracks that can be built with the lane changing forks built in.  Do a little research--you can build wood WITH the lane changing capability!!  Plastic SUCKS over time.  It's always subject to warping and problems.  FWIW

I did some research and found the wood with lane changes is stupid expensive. At least with Scorpius or Oxigen I think it was.
