Hi,heres what i think is a brochure used by salesmen for MRRC from around 1959-60.Photos in order=1-brochure cover,2-brochure open with contents,3-set sold at the time,4-wheels,cast chassis,motors,5-club tracks & Merit kits,6-injection molded bodies(1/32nd scale) from France,7-complete 1/32 scale car kit,rail or slot,8-bodies 1/27 & 1/32nd scale & complete cars,9-price list,10-make it yourself slot tracks,11- price list,wheels,tyres. Now ive also included the 1953-4 catalog showing 1/16th scale gas powered rail cars,programmes,& custom made track for clubs. This is i think rather rare lit.Its a look into the early history of our hobby.
Hope you all enjoy ,Bernard

I have never run the MRRC gas car,no track .
The early MRRC cars are pretty rare,ive never seen a 1/27th scale car.The mint on a card cars are extremely rare. Im sure they would go for over 1500 lbs if one showed up. Thanks,Bernard

Here are 2 very rare and early MRRC catalogs. The 1st catalog shown here is from 1952-1953. It shows the diesel powered metal cars made for in door racing. You can see the complete track they built. The 2nd catalog shown here is from 1958-1960 ? It shows both the very rare1/27th and 1/28th scale rail and slot cars and still some diesel powered cars.

Here are some early MRRC cars we have here at the museum. The 1st photo shows a diesel model. The 2nd & 3rd show a MIP 1/32nd kit which can be made into either a rail or slot car. The next 2 photos shows 2 very rare 1/27th scale cars ,1 a rail & the other a slot. The next photo shows 5 rail and slot cars The next 2 photos show 3 early MRRC chassis with custom wooden bodies. The last photo shows a rare early MRRC controller.
