Another rail track in the USA was in Aurora, IL at Richards' bros hobby shop. Also an MRRC dealer. Track was part of the stores club program and not really a rental option. Racing was an adult/club members only deal. As a teen, I got to own my own car and drive on the track. Not certain of first year, but operated as early as 1958 when I raced on it. My dad was a member of the U-control flying club and past president of it. We also were active in the early 1950's gas tether car group. That rail track IS BURIED under the adjacent bank parking lot....for the acheologists to ponder.

I was one of the kids that helped build the first slot track in 1960 (across the river) in the basement of Aurora Cycle and Hobby. Sell track time?...a new idea of the mid 1960's......
