Your choice of track is tied to your power system for your locomotive. You really need to decide how you will power and control your locomotives. Then, the decision of what track material is easy.
I've posted some things for the beginner (and some intermediate people too!) on my site:
I'd read everything in the FAQ section, here is the entry point, click the sub-menus below on the left: FAQs
You can also read about the pro's and con's of different track materials: Track and Rail Material
Spend some time reading, and talking to people about what they like. Join the nearest club and visit layouts and see what people use. Get an idea of what things you like. The first decisions are important.

Hello to all,
My first post here. I was wondering out of all the track companies that are out there who is the best for out side? I know LGB is very good but it is getting very limited around here.
Thanks for any replies.
