Also they have some great auto and motorcycle museums to go through. Well worth the trip to visit.

I would like to see a transcript of this.   Slot history in America  "kind of" begins at Kalamazoo and their rail track.

I attended the presentation and I do not believe that a transcript or recording exists of it. With all due respect to the club doing the presenting, there was little covered in the lecture that isn't general knowledge and in fact several regrettable errors were in the presentation.

Sad to hear the report of the lecture about the early days in Kalamazoo.   I guess  this part of slot history in America is lost except for the bits and pieces we allready know..        It would have been nice had any of the original guys there to  tell the history and the details of building a rail track back then and the cars they ran.
