Operating the Eliminator
For best results we recommend you run the Eliminator directly behind your locomotive(s).
This car will operate in either direction without any problems, but it will clean your track most efficiently when the roller is toward the front.
Wet or Dry – You Decide
The Cratex roller is made of a rubberized abrasive, the same material as a Bright Boy®. It is designed to be used “dry” (without any fluid).
The canvas covered roller can be run either “wet” (using whatever type of liquid cleaner you prefer) or dry.
The Handi Wipes roller is designed to be run with the cleaning fluid of your choice.

(Specify “Cratex”, “canvas” or “Handi Wipes®” roller when ordering)
Negotiate a 9" radius track. The roller is positioned at one end of the car. This allows the Eliminator to operate on layouts with tight radius curves without hitting scenery or switch machines.
Better tracking and ease of running. The Eliminator, with its body-mounted couplers, was designed to run behind the locomotive (most of which also have body mounted couplers). This allows the car to follow the locomotive in a more prototypical manner than truck mounted couplers, and provides better tracking with less possibility of de-railing.
Three brushes dust the top of the rails. This helps remove any residue left behind by the roller.
The magnet picks up loose metal objects. It rids your layer of stray track spikes, nuts, bolts, springs and other magnetic items.
Exclusive special run car body. The hard black anodized aluminum chassis cleaning mechanism is housed in a special run Atlas® 21000 series boxcar. It is painted MW (Maintenance of the Way) gray, and printed with “MW” and dimi data. Space is provided for you to add the road name and road number of your choice (decals not included).
