It's a standard 2mm thread. Aristo sells a tap and drill set. So does ACE hardware.

Some run a 2-56 tap through the hole and put in a 2-56 screw.

I've seen a couple pieces of track with the hole too high. You have to munge the joiner a little to get the screw in.

It's handy to have some rail clamps on hand for those spots, or where you have to stand on your head and look through the wrong part of your glasses to get that accursed little screw in. Saves a lot of colorful language. I'm not rich enough to put rail clamps on all the joints.
