Looking in Nn3 groups I found this post from Mark Fielder.
For Microtrains and Marklin bits, the best contact in the UK I can
think of is Osborn's Models, run by Maurice Pearce
( http://www.modelrailshop.com/ ).
You can do online orders or they have a very good shop at Abingdon,
which is a fair trek from London, I know.
I know that there are other posts about Z shops on the Nn3 groups
file but this is the only one that I found. Hope that you don't mind

- Hi Gang,
I'd really like to thank Jeremy for providing this terrific link to
resources in the UK. I have been having a great time exploring the
databases and lists. I learned that Z scale is well represented at
train shows thanks to the efforts of Graham Jones (ZClub92-GB).
and scroll down to the Northamptonshire list.
Graham has 3 layouts available for exhibitions: "Greenridge Docks" -
a US prototype freestanding layout that measures 6' x 2', "Hoen
Steine Burg" - a German prototype freestanding layout that measures
8' x 2' and the "Wintersdorf" display layout.
No wonder I can't get a booking for the Val Ease Central in the UK.
Graham has the country blanketed with Z! I believe that he was
present at the Warley National Train Show two weeks ago in
Birmingham, UK and has several other shows on his calendar.
