Ask for them at neighborhood toy stores in New York, New Jersey, Chicago, and Philadelphia, but also look for shops in Museums and other institutions. Grand Central Terminal is a great place to visit in New York, and we're in two shops there! There are several online stores that also sell Munipals®, including our own, and they ship from different parts of the country, so you might be able to save by ordering from an online store nearer to you.
We sell track in our Midtown Manhattan Stations and Track Set, but any standard-sized wooden track like Brio® and Thomas® will work, even IKEA® sells wooden track sets. There are many options online for wooden track, and used track is a great option too. Look for track in yard or garage sales or online. Ebay is a great source for track, and since they're solid wood a light cleaning will make them as good as new.
Maybe you can, or maybe someone you know can, but you would have to have pretty good woodworking skills to be able to make good tracks. Router bits to carve the grooves in the tracks, and the cutters for the connecting joints can both be found online. Just search for "wooden track router bits." Maybe if they come out nicely you can try selling them, after all, it is an open standard and unpainted wood tracks don't have to be safety tested.
We get many requests to make specific trains and buses around the country, and also historic models. We hope to find a way, as we grow our business, to make more trains and to partner with more transit authorities. We are always thankful for the tips and suggestions our fans send us. Please keep them coming!
No, but have you been to YouTube? Many fans have put up videos of their collections and layouts, and we think this is very exciting! We especially like attempts to recreate city-scapes and actual subway and train stations, and to see the imaginative, playful, and creative solutions of our fans.
You can contact us through our contact page! We will be happy to assist you.
