I use 6mm long size 0-80 bolts which I get from my local hardware store.

See you lucky guys can buy them sort of bolts over there. Over here hardware stores only sell massive ones to bolt the roof on your house or your ladder to the wall to stop people nicking them. Don't suppose anybody would want to post me a gross box for a fee would they

No not really Alex, it was a bit tongue in cheek but it is not too far from the truth I got a call to a leaking A/C unit the other day, when I got there the A/C was fine, the lead roof however was not, somebody had nicked it in the night and yes you guessed right the roof was right next to the police station, no joke. Scrap metal prices are through the roof here right now so any metal with scrap value is vulnerable------ Tiny bolts of the 0-80 variety are a rareity in the uk. When model trains were more prolific years ago we used to get tiny BA screws but with the advent of the metric system the smallest I have seen is about 1mm. On TT that is huge,so that is why I prefer the American sizes of which you still have a great variety

The MicoTrains N couple screws are 00-90, which will work for the TTNut hopper. If you have an N train dealer over there they are MicroTrains part number 001-12-020, 24 pieces for $2.99 list price.
MBKlein sells them mail order for $2.29 per pack of 24 but I don't know what they would charge to ship to the UK....dave

That's cheaper (by a LOT) than than what I'm paying for the bare bolts. I may go the MicroTrains route.

The only local place that handles 00-90 or 0-80 around here is really expensive, so I get most of mine from here-

These trucks are now available only in Frosted Detail material - better detail, surface and, less rolling resistance. Same goes for the 2 spring version (aka "scaro special"). Trucks are no longer packaged with the freight cars due to the difference in material.

Another source for small screws is TrainAidsA (www.trainaidsA.com). I have ordered the small screws for attaching track to the board, which are a self tapping screw that should also work for couplers and trucks. If these are too small, they have larger sizes. Service is very prompt.

on the new truck material, does that go for the 'dalmain' trucks as well? i think i should order a couple of pair of these to see what they are like. the shape i like, i don't need the extra springs but not sure how obvious they are.
