From that, I'm guessing this is temporary and you aren't going to ballast.

Removable double-sided tape.
Lots of brands and various degrees of "removable."
For tape to work, your track and cork must be clean and dust-free.

You can also go on a nail hunt. Perhaps sequin pins would work. Or other sorts of straight pins.

Well if you use white glue (elmer's etc.), it doesn't take much to hold it and when you want to pull it up you just mist it with water and it reactivates and you just pull it up.  I do it all the time when I am unsure if I will need to change the track.  Otherwise, like others have said, double sided tape may work.

a hot glue gun used sparingly - a small drop every 6" or so. I like it because it holds tightly but comes off the cork with a little Xacto knife effort under the ties with minimal damage to the cork for repositioning and dries clear.

You can find small nails at woodworking shops. They're used in cabinet making. Also shops that have doll house kits.
