Medium spikes are blackened steel (not stainless, will rust) and come in bags of 800 and are commonly used on 1:32 Standard Gauge Ties.
Our large spikes are made of nickel silver and come in 2oz, 4oz, 8oz, and 1lb bags and are commonly used on 1:20.3 Narrow Gauge Ties. For an estimate of quantity, 2oz of spikes yield around 500pcs, 4oz 1,000pcs, 8oz 2,000pcs, and 1lb 4,000pcs.
If laying track for outdoor use, it is recommended to use the large spikes regardless of the scale you are modeling. The large spikes are much more durable and will hold up to the changing seasons for a longer amount of time. For this reason, we use large spikes when building all of our turnouts and crossings in both 1:20.3 and 1:32 scales.
