The images show track on the ground in a currently forgotten tunnel that runs between Castle Gate and Cinder Bank.
A test passenger platform will be located at Cinder Bank at the end of the track.
It comes as work is already well under way to construct the VLR National Innovation Centre at the old Dudley Train Station in Castle Hill.
The whole project is expected to be complete in early 2022. It will put the area at the national forefront of new rail technology looking for cheaper and more efficient alternative to heavy rail and tram transport.
Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council said: "It is fantastic to see this ground-breaking project moving forward at pace.
"Seeing the first sections of track laid are a real symbol of the positive developments on the way in our borough.
"We are forging an exciting and bright future for Dudley town centre, with a billion pounds worth of regeneration works including this and the Metro coming very soon. It’s exciting times."
Councillor Ian Kettle, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise, said: "It gives me great pride to see the first sections of track laid down, following on from the excellent progress being made in building the innovation centre.
"This project will help to create jobs and put Dudley on the national map once again for innovation, technology and manufacturing.
Nick Mallinson, chief executive officer of the BCIMO, said: "I’m looking forward to the test track coming into use in February 2021, when we will commence testing of the Coventry VLR shuttle vehicle."
