Does anyone know if there are replacement tracks available in either resin or plastic (or even vinyl) for the Fort/Eastern Express kit? The kit-supplied vinyl ones seem to be a few 'links' too short and cause the entire suspension assembly to warp.
Thanks, Dave

I`ve got this kit as well and although I don`t like the rubber bands, there probably is no other option for it. This is to my knowledge the only kit in existence and so obscure that no company is going to risk investing in masters for AM tracks (I`d love to be proven wrong though)
