Anyone out there tried Micro Engineering's yard ladder track system of different style

turnouts to save space? It looks interesting, not sure I fully understand it without seeing it laid out.

The pieces simply have a narrow frog angle, and parts of the adjacent track built in to each piece, to enable closer track spacing than you can get with other commercial turnouts. It's a good idea if your space is limited.

MicroEngineering's track products are excellent quality, so no worries there.

I've used both, and I like them each for different reasons...
Peco flextrack is more flexible; M.E. is stiffer, and holds curves better (e.g., you may need to pin Peco curves more).
Peco's turnouts are widely available in more configurations, but M.E. are (IMO) superior... just harder to find on LHS shelves.
