Who the hell would use triangle screws on Thomas the Tank Engine? That is seriously anal.

 

 

You can thank europe for that. Along with battery compartments that wont close without an annoying screw.

Kickinbac: 

I had a Thomas the Tank Engine toy to fix that had the triangle screws. I found the triangle bits hard to source so I got a square drive bit and ground off a side on my bench grinder. It wasn’t perfect but worked adequately to do the job.

 

Hah! That's the exact reason I had to buy some triangle bits.

 

I got these off AliExpress if anyone wants some.
