I bought these N scale RR nails some time ago. I use them mainly to hold planks in place while glue dries.

There was a one star review of them claiming they were waaay too small. :D  That one star review was what made me purchase them immediately  ;)

I doubt you counted these, but any guess as to how many were in the package? The listing doesn't say.

 

Thanks -

I ordered these nails and they came in today. The quantity looked a lot less than 500 to me so I decided to count them. There were 238 in my package, two of which were bent and one was not well blackened. The listing does not mention a quantity - only a weight, so I can't blame the seller. I like the black coating well enough. The nails appear to be steel as I expected since, when you cut off the end, you can see silver. Just wanted folks to be aware that you probably won't get any more than I did since they're sold by weight.

 

If you need a lot of these, you may be better off doing a web search for "PECO PEC-SL14" One site I clicked on had the same package for $2.49. I don't know what they charge for shipping. The price on Amazon is $5.88 with free shipping.

Sorry if my post mislead you. I just saw similar items with a count of 500.

I bought these a year and a half ago and still have more than plenty. ;)

No problem. The nails will be useful in any case. I looked at probably the same item of 500 nails but someone asked a question about the thickness of the nails and someone responded that they were 2mm. I doubt that's really the case - in the picture, they certainly don't look that thick. But the ones I got will be plenty for a long time to come.
