Hi
1) Is #54 the common screw for this, putting the trucks on freight cars?

2) Where can I get these?

Thanks

2-56 screws for trucks are generally sold in three different lengths... 1/8", 3/16" and 1/2".
The standard is 3/16"

I ordered up a bulk pack of 100 through my local ace hardware. I’m really good at dropping those little screws
Dropping them isn't really an issue. It's finding them again after I do that causes problems.

Although it seems that anyone in bare feet will find a missing one almost immediately!
