I use isopropyl alchohol on new track that has gone greasy (mainly caused by live steam or overlubrication of locomotive running gear). With any of these cleaners its the traction tyres you have to watch. If any of them get into the rubber it spells disaster.

The fact is though the original "track rubber" is very effective and I feel that I am giving the track a key when using this. Its like having your own mobile sandbox.

In terms of track cleaning wagons it is hard to beat the old Triang Track Cleaning Box Car. It had weight (diecast bogies and chunky plastic) and a nice solid felt pad underneath to absorb all the crud.

Happy modelling
