**** The black stuff on the rails that comes off on your finger is 97% copper oxide, with the rest other base metals and gneral crud. Anything that stops it forming is a plus. I don't agree with the use of sandpaper but a fine track cleaner is fine. I'd also vacuum as part of the cleanup process.

I use a similar product from time to time on customers locos as well as my own, but the one I use is outrageously expensive - $100 for 20ml, so its used sparingly on pickups and wheels.

The product mentioned looks worth a try. As always, results will be as good as the pre-clean and quality of the application process
