Code 55 turnouts

I am still working on the design of my new layout and since I saw a topic over on the A forum, I thought I'd test my ideas here.  I am going to use Atlas Code 55 track and turnouts.  Here is what I am looking at:

#5 turnouts in all yards
#7 turnouts to sidings off the main
#7 turnouts as yard leads off the main (almost the same as above)
#10 for crossovers on the main

What do you all think?

I like to use #7s in the yard also, especially on ladders

If you are building anything larger than a door layout, I'll second John's advice and go for the #7's in the yard too.  They are very nice turnouts.  I just bought 40 #7's for my new layout, and I'll need another 30 or so.  The #10's use up some real estate, but they are sweet!  I have four for my main cross overs.  Plan on powering the frogs, especially the #10's!   8)
