Re: HOn3 track cleaning cars
- Centerline brass roller cleaner for HO. They sell a coupler mod to make it work on HOn3. It works great.

- I built a HOn3 Track Cleaning car from a CMX N gauge Track Cleaner.
I purchased a CMX N car at the local hobby shop and had it converted
to HOn3 in a couple hours. I used trucks and couplers off a Micro Trains box car that
I was planning to upgrade to Kadee anyway.
I fill it with Isopropyl alcohol and pull it around. It works great!
