I am making a rollercoaster-style layout with steep inclines/declines (30 degrees) and angled turns (40 degrees). What n-scale track should I buy that has the most flexibility and can bend the most without breaking?
Note: The train will not run. It is for display only.

Thank you for your help,
Scott

Atlas Superflex Track is probably your best bet. It's cheap and widely available. The curves won't be a problem at all, but the sharp vertical angles may mean that you will have to use a bending brake or jig on the track. Flex track bends side to side very well, but not so much up and down (real railroads have a problem with abrupt and steep grades after all).
