    ... I call that a 'part.'

    it is a shoulder type screw.
    I do not think they are a standard and easy to find item.

    If I need to replace one, I usually use a screw inside a brass tube.

    mostly they are steel and brass will not hold in service.

    yer best bet is to talk to the outfit what made it...

    nice web site.
    that has the look of 'made to order' and I would not mind being shown I miss-read.

    sd75i,
    if you get screws from Precision shoulder screws, please let us know how it went?

    maybe they will send out samples... call for that.

    your problem is that you don't know what screw fits the ...
    umm... cleaning pad?

    first, assume it is metric because most n-scale is.
    and 1.5mX1 is common and is close to 0-80.
    what I can't help you with is where you might find a test screw. got a minitrix k4?
    I think the shell screw is this size( oh that is an old memory...)
    the m-trix 0-6-0 is the same size and far shorter.

    most of the old Atlas/RR steam used M2x1 If my increasingly feeble memory serves.
    this size is close to 1-72

    m1.4 and m1.8 exist so you may find the hunt goes a while.

    This is what I'm choosing to go with right now! Bigger but same type concept of screw. Gonna make my own track cleaning cars. There is a easier way with nails and masonite but I want to see if I can make a couple the way roco did or (does).
