I ordered some from the link MaineSail posted, and it is on its way! As i was looking at my genny tracks earlier tonight, it occurred to me that perhaps this stuff will ooze out from under the track and obstruct the block car? It seems that cleaning it out from under the lip of the track might not be the easiest thing to do... Just paranoia?

Hit the RV store yesterday, 1" wide x 20 feet for $8.00 Canadian. What is that these days, about buck and a half American?

Yeah, that's paranoia. You'll be able to get something under beveled edge of the track to clear it. Think of really sticky play doh.
