I've always just gotten mine off Amazon as "skewer sticks" - obviously not the metal ones.

I use voodoo doll pins/pricks when I host my operating sessions.

A bag at your Dollar store should be a lifetime supply unless you host some BBQs.

I have some fancy plastic ones I bought years ago which work great for N Scale.

I think in model railroad use they are called coupler pics 
many start as cut down bambo cooking spears (not to be confused with Dill spears which don't fit between cars well)
