Re: New Year resolution. Track cleaning car
I am really tempted to let the cat out of the bag, but I'll hold it
till I test it a little more. It is a simple non DCC cleaning car. I
guess this one is the one that works the best so far. Once I tell you
folks how it is done you will for sure say why didn't I think of this
before and it can be made for under $5 that's all for now.
Anyways I was thinking of cleaning one of the loco and using graphite
or teflon powder for lubricating instead of oil which needs
maintenance more often and gathers dust.
Has any one tried this or do you think this might cause more
problems??? any suggestions
Happy 2001 to you too and every one in this group.
