    The 'new' Atlas cleaning car is just a copy of the Tomix model that has been available now for several years. IMHO the Tomix model is the best and most versatile track cleaning car available.

    I have one. It really sucks up alot of dirt and dust... also good for removing those few bits of ballast not glued down
