Hi guys,
During my move to California one of my 55025 Decoders shed four of the screws that tighten up the wire clamps to and from the decoder. Entirely my fault for not tightening them up after removing the wires for transit!
Can anyone tell me the details/size of the missing screws and possibly where I may source them?
Many thanks.

Try Ace hardware, you should be able to find metric stainless steel screws... no idea the size, but if no one figures it out, I guess I can find a motor and measure them. They are in the bottom of a box, I think.

I measured the screw as a M3 x 0.5 x 4.5 mm. These are very narrow head slotted "cheese head" screws. The nearest I could quickly find that come close to matching after checking Grainger and McMaster-Carr and google : McMaster-Carr . The head is just a shade larger in diameter but I think it will work - I measured 3.62 mm on the LGB screw and the spec on the MC screw is 4.0 mm. The MC is 0.5 mm longer too but that will not matter.

Thanks Phil, I will try to get hold of some.
I have raided the programming slots and used those screws for the time being.
