Does anybody know a good source of small Marklin parts, Screws, brushes, etc in the USA? Right now, it is some screws (785070).

Plenty on Ebay, but all from Europe. A $1.50 part plus $44 shipping. On Ebay sellers seem only to ship insured, tracked, air express, etc. No dull boring and cheap mail.

Yeah, I use them, but they do not always have what I need (like 785070 screws). Another source?

Did you try Marklin USA?

If not, try Schweickhardt, Lippe or Kieskemper in Germany and specify that the item be sent Briefpost (less than 12 EUR)

I might have some but it is hard to say since they are not bagged. What is it for? Where does it go?

If Rick can't help you try Helmuts Hobbies in Virginia. I've had good luck with Scott in the past obtaining parts. Good luck!

Andrew at AC Euro trains in Stockton has a pretty good supply of parts. I use him pretty much exclusively

Phone: 209-222-8022

I confirmed with him that he does have the 785070 screws
