I found this eight-lane power supply/track paid timer in NJ yesterday. No markings of American Model Raceway. Any info on maker or it would really be cool if anyone knows what track it came from?

Thank you,

MRA 600.... look under the power switch. MRA sounds familiar but I'd guess the 600 means 600 watts. Just Googled and didn't see the PS shown but MRA was a power supply builder for the electronics/commercial markets. Maybe these were sold with Engleman or other non-AMR tracks.

Here's "Model Car and Track" 1965 October issue.
Page 8 has an intro to the MRA power supply (actually the 10th page of the post there).
