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) with the rollers toward the front and the magnet in the rear.
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 cleaning fluid).
The Handi Wipes roller can be run with the liquid cleaner of your choice.
The canvas covered roller can be run either with or without fluid.
