from the images (even those are infected) I found that it appears to be a modified version of a Norm Abrams table..
here's a modified version of both of them...

No track in my table. Sometimes, I wish for one. But, work arounds are pretty simple. My RT is an extension of the TS and both share the same fence.

I like tracks on my table. Also, on my fence, particularly a high fence. A tall fence is pretty easy to make and is useful for routing the ends of longer pieces.

For what I do, don't need tracks, or a fence. However, a future project WILL require a fence - but a piece of 2X4 clamped down, with a small cutout for the bit, will answer all my needs.

When I built my current table, I got the combination t-track/miter slot that woodpecker sells. The miter slot doesn't get used often, but when it does, I am glad I have it.

I put tracks in mine -- best thing I ever did (to the router table).

My Kreg router table has a miter track.

I have tracks in both my router tables, if you are doing much router tablr work, you will need them to clamp thing down and for feather board hold downs both above and to the side to safely feed material through.
