Re: Cleaners & Lubricants
problem isn't keeping the track clean, it is the wheels on my
K-Line locomotives. K-Line's MP-15 has trucks with zinc
wheels, four plain and four with traction tires. Every three
hours of running I have to take these locomotives off the
track and clean the black gunk off the wheels. I do not have
this problem with my ETS locomotives ( plated wheels ) or my
MTH locomotives with knurled steel wheels. I don't put
anything on my Gargraves track.
Is the black gunk from the traction tires? Could I tin plate the wheels? Any other ideas?
