6mm oo/ho gauge track screws.

6mm track screws suitable for oo gauge Horny and Peco e.t.c model railway track in place of track pins.

If you are using foam underlay you will want to use track screws longer than 6mm. See below.

Suitble for use with scalextric track fittings in place of Hornby track pins.


8mm oo/ho gauge track screws.

8mm track screws suitable for Hornby and Peco oo/ho model railway track when you want to do some unnecesary extra screwing. Suitable for Fleischmann profi track (but I used 10mm with mine - only because I did not have 8mm at the time.).


10mm oo/ho track screws

10mm track screws suitable for Fleischmann profi track (but I would recomend 8mm). Gleisschrauben spur HO Fleichmann.


12mm oo/ho track screws

12mm 00 gauge track screws - suitable for Marklin C track and Bachmann Easitrack.

14mm 00 gauge track screws

16mm 00 gauge track screws - for when you want to go that extra mile.

These screws are the correct diameter to pass througth the pre exhisting holes in Hornby, peco set track, Fleischmann Profi etc. They are slef tappers and can be screwed directly into soft woods, sundeela board and the like. Using a tiny drill (smaller than the screw) to precut into wood will always make screwing them in easier. Using over long screws in a solid surface without predrilling will increase the torque on the head as you screw them in with the increased liklihood of stripping the head, use the minimum length you need. Screws hold better than pins and do not need to penetrate anywhere near as far to hold the track firmly.Just because some track pins are 16mm long does not mean you want 16mm screws.


N gauge model railway track screws - Gleisschrauben spur N

6mm track screws suitable for N gauge Fleiscmann, Horny and Peco e.t.c model railway track in place of track pins. These N gauge tracl screws are thiner than the 00 gauge track screws I sell.

'Mini' driver for 00 and N gauge track screws

A basic 8.5 cm screwdiver of adequate quality to turn n gauge track screws. No thrills, no fun.Tired fingers by the time you're done. Only available if ordered with screws. It does not make economic sense to sell on it;s own since the postage is more than the cost of the driver.

6mm long model railway track screws are suitable for Hornby, Peco, etc OO / HO gauge model railway track in place of track pins. 8mm long model railway track screws are suitable for Fleischmann ho gauge profi gleis ready ballasted track. 10mm model railway screws are not suitable for Roco geoline - you want something a little longer. 8mm track screws are neither here nor there.

These self tapping screws measure 1.4 mm diameter are suitable for fixing OO gauge model railway track by manufactures like Hornby, Peco and Fleischmann to base boards. The main benefit of using track screws rather than track pins is the ease with which track screws can be removed if the track needs lifting. Rather than trying to prise track pins up with the potential to damage sleepers on expensive pieces of model railway track you can gently unscrew the track screws. Neither are you sending unnecessary shock waves through your model railway layout when tapping track pins in. It is also the case that track screws do not need to be as long as track pins to get a decent purchase in the base board. While track pins may be cheaper that track screws the cost is negligible compared to the price of a set of model railway points. Would you spoil the ship for a haporth of tar? Why spoil a layout for a few threpenny screws.

If you are unhappy with your purchase you may return it within 14 days for a refund.
