Operating the Track Star
These cars are designed for ease of use and minimal maintenance. For best results we recommend you run the cleaning car directly behind your locomotive(s).
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.”
The canvas covered roller can be run either “wet” (using whatever type of cleaning fluid you prefer) or dry (without any fluid).

(Specify “Cratex” or “canvas” when ordering)
A hard anodized aluminum chassis holds one roller and a magnet.
The magnet picks up loose magnetic objects that are lying on the track. It will retrieve stray springs, nuts, bolts, coupler trips pins, track spikes and other items not wanted on your layout.
Cleaning mechanism is housed in a Bachmann 30 foot high side gondola.
NOTE: Road names may vary depending on availability.
