Coil Springs

I think I have identified an issue with my Maxitrak Simplicity which seems to delight in derailing! The Axle springs seem to be uneven between the axle boxes, meaning that all the wheels aren't always touching the track at the same time. What companies sell coil springs and is there any information on how to choose the correct ones?

You need to measure the wire diameter, outside diameter and free length. Then look them up at Lee Spring (www.leespring.co.uk). No connection, apart from as a customer.
