Annihilator™ HO Scale Track Cleaning Car
Part Number TS1165
The Annihilator is one of the meanest weapons in Aztec’s arsenal of HO cleaning products to fight the war on dirty track. It was engineered for ease of use and minimal maintenance. It can be run in a train and go unnoticed without hitting scenery or derailing.
A hard black anodized aluminum chassis holds two free rolling canvas (Sidewinder™) rollers, a magnet and a fluid reservoir (1/2 oz. capacity).
There is a valve to regulate the amount of cleaning liquid dispensed to the front roller. The rear roller is run “dry” (without any liquid) and mops up loosened grime. A clear plastic lid covers the reservoir allowing you to see when it is running out of fluid. Turn valve about one quarter turn for ten seconds or so. Turn off and run for 10 to 15 minutes (or change times to suit).
This stealthy lightweight tips the scales at a mere 7-3/4 ounces soaking wet. The Annihilator will clean in either direction but works best with the magnet to the rear.
The custom painted RoundhouseŽ 40ft gondola is gray with black “M.W.” and dimi data. No road or end numbers are provided. The modeler may apply decals (not included) in the railroad of his choice. To finish off the car the hobbyist might want to cover the mechanism with a piece of cloth (not supplied) to simulate a tarp.
Equipped with KadeeŽ couplers.
NOTE: Road names may vary depending on availability.
Some assembly is required.
