Did a quick inventory of TransAmerica, which gets heavy use in our school boardgame club -- down four track pieces. I posted on the WANT/HAVE list, but thought some of you might have an idea or two for replacement or piece source. Thanks for any help!

Glue four wooden match sticks into a block (cut off the tip and size it) and then paint it black?

Craft stores usually have a section of various sized and shaped wooden bits that could be painted...

Good luck!

I don't see how you'd ever need all of the track it comes with.

Our group used to occasionally play games at a local Qdoba. Once I was looking around on the floor for something I'd dropped, and I found a TransAmerica track. We hadn't played TransAmerica there in at least four weeks. That didn't give me a high opinion of their cleaning staff.

So if you're ever at Qdoba, you might look around for tracks that other gamers have dropped.
