    Guys,
    I tried some of this:
    Oster Blade Wash
    and have been very happy with the results so far, it acts more or less as a 2 in one.
    Cleans like crazy and leaves behind a film of lube

    Hi guys...
    SF Jack, Bright Boys have the reputation of scratching the railheads, leaving minute (microscopic..) scratches which over time create a larger surface area for grime & muck to adhere to. I do not advise their use as a general, all-over-the-layout cleaner. I sometimes use it to clean really mucky rail, generally new rail which can be filthy. If you want to use a "rub" cleaner, I find cork to be as good, especially if wetted with a little alcohol.

    Out here where I am, brass track is collectible. Set it by the curb on Tuesday morning and it will be collected.
