Modelling Tip Of The Day – 81

This Modelling Tip Of The Day is an ongoing series, in which we’ll be posting a modelling tip that may be of use to the newbie right up to the seasoned modeller. Today’s tip is:

Clean Track

A clean track is essential for smooth trouble free running. One product that our team uses here at for many many years with great success is Deluxe Materials Track Magic. It cleans, protects & prevents dirt build up on your track work & point work. It’s also an electrical cleaner too which is ideal for loco maintenance, such as cleaning wheels & loco power pickups.

In the box is a bottle of the Track Magic Cleaning Fluid, a pipette, decanting cup, micro tip flexible brush & a sponge pad applicator. To use simply, use the pipette to draw a small amount of Track Magic Fluid & decant into the small plastic cup. Dip the sponge applicator pad into the fluid & wipe along the tracks.

For areas like pointwork such as switch rails & loco wheels/power pickups, use the small micro tip brush. Again using a small amount of fluid in the plastic cup. Never dip the brush directly into the bottle as it’ll contaminate the clean fluid with any dirt picked up on the brush. Always use from the plastic cup.

Every layout should have a bottle of Track Magic in their maintenance tool kit!!
