Thanks.

A company called Forster sells little wood crafting sticks that are similar but not exactly like the TransAmerica pieces (they're longer and not painted black).

Forster offers a whole line of wood crafting items, so it's possible they have something that more closely matches the TransAmerica pieces.

I'd do a web search for Forster wood products and see what comes up.

Good luck!

Any craft or hobby store will have wooden rods, dowels and square shape "rods." Not too much work....exacto knife, and a can of spray paint.

For a prototype game, I bought a box of 100 "fireplace" (long and thick) matchsticks for about $5. Each matchstick produced about 10 "tracks." They worked very well for my purposes.
