In any case, any examples or experience of homemade track along these lines would be greatly appreciated. Not exactly the same as you are doing, but my first track back in the 70's was using an extruded aluminum rail that had a 'tongue' underneath that fitted into a slot in the tie.
I found that after a couple of seasons, with expansion and contraction, the rail slowly worked it's way out of the ties. Larry Stavers track in Portland is similar to what you are doing, but he has used steel, but again, I noticed this year that many ties have worked loose.
Before I got serious about g-scale, I made this track to run my B'man around the kids play area.
But overall, I have the same basic idea complete with the underlying foundational roadbed boards.

Here is a hard working Shay (the grade is over 5% and the logs on the flat cars are real) going up a homebuilt loop. This bug was built from a Lego MindStorm set (with a few parts borrowed from some other kits as well).
This groovy track is used in the ride on scales but the idea is the same, this will give you the pros & cons of the system. With the price of brass track today, your idea of using aluminum flat bar will save people a lot of money especially for storage yards etc.
It uses an LGB diesel engine's power brick (one that comes in a starter kit, I think) with one axle removed.


I scratchbuilt a new cab out of wood (my first G scale board by board model ever!), added some new front and rear couplers (home made link and pin) and a few other details.
You can see the home made front beam with its link and pin coupler (scratch built from brass). Here is the story behind its funny shape: this engine was in a locomotive shed that caught fire and burned to the ground.
