How To Clean The Wheels Of Model Train Locomotives

I just got an email from Dave with a short demonstration video of how he cleans the wheels of his model train locomotives.

Dave uses the Trix wheel cleaner which is available in HO scale (OO gauge) and N scale. It is a brush that cleans both locomotive wheels and the track.

If necessary the brushes can be lengthened  by connecting more than unit together. This is an important piece of equipment to avoid those horrible connectivity problems on your track and avoid TV and radio reception problems.

As you will notice in the video, it is incredibly easy to use. Just place the wheel cleaner on your track, place the locomotive on the cleaning unit and power up the track. In 10 to 15 seconds you will have clean wheels.

Thanks Dave for sharing this…
