I was trying to create a replica.It looks like the sweeping curves coming into the yard are only 3 degrees and nobody makes such a curved switch.The best I could figure a 3 degree curve would have a radius of about 65 feet in 1:29. So, I am going to go with Train Li R13/R10 for my inside curve with turnouts and Flex for the other curves that do not have turnouts

Wow, so 13 and 10 foot radius, NICE!

I would think you could use #6 turnouts also, and the curves are broad enough that they will integrate well.

You might want to buy a couple and then lay it out with garden hose to look at how it appears.

Be sure to visit my site, lots of technical tips & modifications, and a functional search.

Probably some thoughts from outside the box....
If you would get your feet wet in the program "temp-lot" : scan or take a picture of your drawing/maps.
Upload it to temp-lot, you could make everything as true to real life in scale as possible.

With all the bits of track (in temp-lot) added to your drawing/photo you can figure out precisely what you need from pico track.

My two cents, i hope this was a bit of help, best Igor
All i would like to have and build is a lot of tracks and live coal steam locomotives....
Currently made ~150 meters of track, 5 3-way switches(need 9 more) and 2 turn outs.
6 double slips crossings, 2 curved crossovers are in the planning to be built. in g scale
