"man lives in a model solar system where all of the planets orbit along physical tracks."

if this sounds like an interesting starting point for a story, do yourself a favour and pick up Jay Lake's Clockwork Earth trilogy (Mainspring, Escapement, Pinion).

Please don't be put off by the "Clockwork" part of the trilogy name, this is not-really Steampunk, and it's staggeringly well & widely imagined.

That said, the above video was cute...
