Model Railroad Accessories-Track cleaning cars in all scales including HO, N, O & On30, Z, S and G, plus N scale DCC frames

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).

On30 scale rollers also available separately
