How the Track Star™ Works
A free rolling roller is set an angle to the track. The roller scrubs the rail heads clean when the train is moving. It’s like the tires on your automobile when the front end is out of alignment. As the car goes forward the wheels try to go to the side. That is how the Track Star works—simple but effective.
Advantages of Aztec Track Cleaning Cars
Our track cleaner mechanisms are housed in actual train car bodies so they're "stealth". You can run them in your train at all times and they're hardly noticeable on your layout.
Because they are in a car body there is no risk of hitting scenery adjacent to your track.
Track Stars can be operated in either direction with the same results.

Extra Rollers Also Available Separately
Each Aztec track cleaning car comes complete with one, two or three rollers depending on model, as specified in the product description.
To add flexibility to your track cleaner, you may wish to purchase an additional roller(s). HO scale rollers come in three types: the Cratex® roller, the Sidewinder™ (canvas covered) roller, and the Cobra™ (Handi Wipes® covered) roller.
The Cratex roller must be run “dry” (without any track cleaning fluid). The Sidewinder can be run either dry or with the cleaning fluid of your choice. The Cobra is designed to be run “wet” (with cleaning fluid). (See Which Roller is Right for Me?)
