There are complete sets of tips to remove tamper proof or security fasteners.  I bought a set at Ace Hardware.  Make sure you have the correct tip for the screw you are trying to remove and you are turning the screw in the correct direction . Also try some  WD -40  or penetrating oil. Sometimes you can try tightening the screw and then untightening the screw but beware  of shearing off the screw head . Good Luck.  J2

Gary,
Hmm… Perhaps the folks at MRC (Model Rectifier Corporation) would be interested in your difficult with the screws in their Railpower 1370 power pack.

If the back of of your MCR 's uses a combination screw, try using the standard slot. One of my transformers has that, but it looks like the phillips part is to wide in the center to work well..

The screws on my MRC 1370 (those where you attach the track and accessory wires) are medium sized Phillips head screws. I didn't have any problems loosening them with a medium Phillips screwdriver.
