I have just been talking to an old friend who says he has a really old VIP (he thinks) slotcar set in it's box in the loft. After discussing it for a while he told me that the each section of track is completely made of metal. Apparently it is either chrome or nickel plated and as it is all metal it doesn't have separate rails. All VIP track I have ever seen is plastic with separate rails. Is he dreaming or is it true, said he would go up and check at the weekend.
