Another month has rolled by, which means we all need to keep the trains rolling as well. List your train related wants or needs here, and maybe someone will have what you need. Perhaps you have something that's needed as well.
All right now, I'm looking for cars for my cobbled together daylight consist. I currently have a Mantua baggage, Athearn coach and what I think is a diner (minus windows and trucks), and IHC RPO and Observation cars.
I don't have a sleeper or vista dome and another coach wouldn't hurt.
Not sure how they will all play together, but I have plenty of ConCor passenger trucks to experiment with.
We do have Ace in Canada. I had a look. At least on line, they don't show anything quite that small. The screws are smaller than the Hobbytown 2-56.
Some Ace stores are more complete than others, probably have things not on their web site. I'm lucky to have one close by that has a great hardware section of all kinds of small screws and nuts. Various sizes of 2-56 and similar metrics. Is there one close enough to drive to?

umpdan31: JadeFog: i found a brand new in the box ConCor PRR mail car. Although the ones that I already have are all heavyweights with 6 wheel trucks, this one is a lightweight with 4 wheel trucks. I also picked up a few assorted couplers. Glad he was open again.

umpdan31: The mail car was 10 bucks. Not bad for a brand new car.
