Just before I order - I assume there are no reported problems with this track and RTR stock (Grafar, Peco, Dapol, etc)? Just wondered if the chunkier stuff was better for problem free running or if the Code 55 was perfectly okay? (couldn't see anything on the Peco website page about it that said 'Your RTR stock will need re-wheeling' or anything so figured it was fine, but like I said... just before I click the 'order' button...)

Many thanks,
Dave.

Hi Dave, I've not heard any adverse reports on Peco code 55, the "chairs" are not a problem, unlike the Atlas code 55 where the flanges of older wheels hit them.
Peco Code 55 is also much stronger than other makes as it is really code 80 sunk into the sleepers (ties). Some people find it is not as easy to lay the flexi in curves as it is with code 80 it being a bit stiffer, also you will find it is easier to curve in one direction than the other due to the positioning of the cut outs in the web between sleepers, it bends easiest with the cut outs on the inside of a curve.
Cheers MIKE
