Which track?

Hello all
New to the forum, I'm planning a 12' by 9' L-shaped 'tail chaser' layout for the garage. I'd like it to be based around about the mid to late 70's, so which track is best?, not just from a prototypical point of view, but ease of use, availability etc. I've heard lots of favourable things about SMP and C&L, but pictures are hard to come by, and is it really that much better than Peco stuff? Any info would be appreciated

Richard - you advised to avoid short turnouts completely - yet in most of our space constrained lives they are v useful for sidings etc. is it your experience with running qualities or is it the unrealistic look you don't like?

(currently planning a new layout)
Thanks Richard and others, some good advice, I am revising my plans in my head as I type this.
