My layout has been in existence for eight and a half years now. It's outdoors and uses Peco Flexi track (code 100 mainly concrete sleeper type). The rails weather naturally on the sides (you obviously have to keep the rail surface clean!) producing a very realistic effect but the track itself is just as serviceble as the day I laid it on the base.
A voice from the distance said unto me "Smile, things could be worse" so I smiled and lo, things did get worse!

Only 3 years behind you Metadyneman. Mine has been outside now for 5 years and still as good as new.
