Title say it all.

I am planning a short which requires extensive use of dolly shots on fairly sturdy track (in the rain!). So I need to investigate the different options generally stocked by rental houses.

Does anyone have any links or references that will help? What are the prices generally per meter of track and dolly rig?

make your own...most likely much cheaper. I just made a couple 10 ft. lengths from 1.25-inch metal pipe and 2x4's. Butter smooth. Total cost for the entire build was under $250 USD including a couple new drill bits. Give it a shot!
