We're still in the grip of winter here in the Cape, South Africa, so a good clean up of track is called for! This afternoon ran one of my small tank locos coupled with a cleaning car and pads, and a wagon with a slider...a good few laps running at a fairly high rate of knots, and all is smooth running again around the main lines! Then onto cleaning my shunting lines.....
After an hour or so I could sit back and watch the trains go by again🚂👍🏻🚂
Cant wait for those summer days again BigGrin ThumpUp

Happy training one and all🚂

Hi Stephen
First I run the cleaning wagon and a car with a slider attached by hand. Backwards and forward for a good few times. Then I run a tank loco on the shunting line at "high speed", being careful to stop at the end of the line in time Blink .... Takes time but after a few manual runs and then with attached
Loco it works a treat!
