Some recent hub/rim re-assignments have left me with a beauty of a Shimano High Flange front hub and I'd like to put a solid track axle in it, is there a standard size for these, and where do I get it, and the track nuts.

any bike shop has them in stock or can order them from qbp. should be 9x1 threading

Take one of the lock nuts with you to your LBS. Tell them you want a solid axle that has a matching thread. The right ones are get-able but it might be a special order item.
+1 take in a locknut (actually a cone might be better), cause there's a few different diameters and thread pitches floating around.
