$234.95 each Temporarily out of stock.
The Typhoon is a liquid type track cleaning car. A hard black anodized aluminum chassis holds two canvas covered rollers, the fluid reservoir and a magnet.
The first roller is for scrubbing corrosion loose from the rails. The second roller mops up debris. The bar magnet removes metal objects from the right-of-way.
For those who would like to disguise the roller assembly, a template to build side plates is included. The plates can be made from .050" thick styrene (not included).
Comes in a WeaverŪ 2-bay coal hopper equipped with Weaver high rail trucks and couplers.
NOTE: Road names may vary depending on availability.
Also available in a 2-rail configuration.
Operating the Typhoon
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), with the rollers toward the front and the magnet in the rear.
