The Gilmore complex, which is comprised of multiple museums, is high up on my bucket list.

Greg, why don't get up there and video the talk about rail racing and the origin of slot racing. I would sure like to see that on YouTube where we can all learn from it.

"Slot Cars and the Kalamazoo Connection" as mentioned in another Slotblog thread, was presented March 18th 2018 by John Lacko. I tried to record the presentation but the light level was too low (because of the use of a projected slide show) to produce a video worth watching. Yours truly was the guest presenter representing 1/24th commercial style racing during the Q&A. An action video showing the new "Red Barns Raceway" at the Gilmore was posted in another Slotblog thread.

 

Slotblog's wonderful search feature can be used to find the topics referred to above.
