Yes USA track is a great track. However, it depends on your individual situation. How large is your layout, what’s your budget and what do you have on hand. My prewar (Std & O) layout is 7 x 10. I had accumulated plenty of original Lionel STD track in the past. It was a no brained for me to pick through what I had on hand for the best sections, which was plenty, and use them. I have had no issues with them. As I said it all depends on you.
