Re: DCC Track Cleaning Car

Not being funny, but the cleverest idea is not use these sorts of abrasive cleaning techniques on your railway. Everytime you abrasively clean a section of track you add tiny scratches to the rail surface that simply creates a spot where more dirt and oxidation can collect.
Stick to the rag and isopropyl alcohol type cleaning methods and you will be much better off.
If you do go with a loco powered system of cleaning, make sure the loco PUSHES the cleaning car, rather than have it pulling. There is some weird irony about cleaning the track which the loco has aready successfully passed.
