The literature that comes with the tube says that it works to remove and prevent oxidation at electrical contact points. That is how I used the stuff, wherever there were phosphor-bronze wipers on locos and on turnout swivel joints. On different loco models the wipers are in different positions, i.e. back of the wheels, wheel flanges.
My objective was not to remove oxidation from the track. This came as a by-product of my inadvertent over application of the stuff to the Liliput loco. I had to wipe down the rails several times to prevent wheel slip on a tight curve. You should have seen the black oil that I collected!
So, my suggestion is that this stuff would work well in large scale on motor brush contacts and wheel wipers, and turnout point contacts. I expect a conductive grease would work well on G track joints. You would have to experiment. I haven't laid any track yet so I can't give first hand observations.
