I haven't. But I know that some guy by the name of Peter Jones did. Unfortunately, he passed away. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe he used Peco for track.
Yup, the late and much-missed Peter Jones had Peco n/s track outdoors for well over forty years, in the industrial atmosphere and dank weather of South wales, too. It held up there as well as in rural North Wales, and has been holding up on the commercial Peco site in Beer, Devon, since the late '60's, too.
I'm sure there is some German-made track that is as good, just as there is German-made 45mm track that is good [a name that sounds like Thiele or something?], but right now I can't think of any German 0n30-looking n/s track. We get reminded from time to time about other makes of track that is 'far superior' to anything we have now, or have been using for decades, but apart from the odd twitter on the forum I've never actually heard from anybody using it.
Perhaps our German posters can advise us here?
