InRoadToys.com Comes in 2 and 4 inch width. I think it was marked down at my Walmart, will fo back and check (and buy more). 30 foot rolls of basically printed masking tape.

This stuff been around for years now.
Great that it can be reusable.
Sucks that the logo is on it.

I had an in-depth discussion with the owner of the company a few years back, and encouraged him to investigate the gaming potential of additional surfaces (cobblestone, dirt, etc…), but he does not have appeared to follow up on it.

Damn. I would have killed for that stuff when I was a kid. (And for those paper buildings.)

It's in Walmart, so it looks like he's been successful since his KS project (which failed to fund). Maybe he's too busy with his target demographic for the hobbyists. (:

Looks like there're other tapes on the market: link

If you search on "cobblestone tape" you'll find some companies which make this tape for railroads and other hobbies.

I bought a grey posterboard at Michaels for $4.99 USD and made all the roads I will need including turns and 2 parking lots.
