today the postman delivered a Mini Trix track cleaning car (N Gauge/scale) , it is a little heavy and with drag on the track needs two locos to get it moving
the cleaning pad is used dry but re-washable , and two spares are included .




the layout is due for a make over over the winter month's .

ST & the girls

Sorry, know I'm a blonde, but what happens if you don't clean the track?

If the track becomes dirty the electrical contact with the locomotive becomes poor which results in erratic running or the train stalling. You also have to ensure that the wheels on all of your rolling stock are clean.

hi Holly , it's correct what mr Dongo say's , i've been told mucky track is worse if you are digital controlled , cos' mr Track is DCC (digital command control) and has some sound loco's and if the track is dirty the sound is intermittent and so is the loco ...

also Carly & CG is correct that modelers in the USA pay great attention to clean track , some make their own cleaning cars and the cleaning pad is laconite ? - what UK calls hardboard .

I might ask Santa to go blonde
love N' hugs Carly xxx ...... & the rest of the house

We are analogue here and has no idea that dirty track caused problems with the sound in DCC.
