Over at the Facebook American OO Group page Phil R. posted a link to a new OO product at Track Emporium. It seems they are branching out in to 1/76 and have in production OO ties very reasonably priced. Their listing, with a photo linked from their site:

Solid Wood sleepers and Turnout Timbers with a nearly perfect scaled down real grain.

Properly 4mm scale outline for 00, EM and P4

Sleepers 10" wide by 8ft 6 in long

UPDATE: I received three packages of these, they really are great OO ties, if you are hand laying track these are the way to go.
