Where in can I get supplies for OO gauge hand-laid tracks?

Where in Europe can I get supplies for OO gauge hand-laid tracks? Parts like PCB ties, rail chairs, track spikes etc.
Search for parts always sends me to suppliers in the US but shipping cost and time for one or two items is inconvenient.

C & L are another source, just do a search.
They also supply pre-made 'V's of differing angles.

Bundles of loose code 75 track can be bought from Peco but
you don't find it advertised. They do not do copperclad.

Thanks b308, didn't have that at hand when I was posting.

I've also uncovered the Peco code and U.K price for code 75 flat bottomed rail :-
IL3 is a pack of 6 lengths @ £9.80.
That is a reasonable product to use if you keep to Peco streamline points.

Carriage for the above a very different matter, but I live near enough to collect !!

Many thanks for the replies.
I am in the process of laying my first section of rail, it's for an American style trestle bridge so I am spiking the rails to the bridge rather than using chairs. The bridge is only about a foot long so I got regular Peco code 75 flextrack and removed the sleepers, I might use them later for fencing.
