    I am in the process of enclosing my tunnels in my layout, and I am wondering if there are any good products (or an easy way to build something) that will automatically clean the tracks on my layout.

    Although everything on my layout will be "accessable" it won't always be convienent to access some areas.

    I like the Centerline rail cleaning car and Aero Locomotive Works track cleaner. (I use the HO car.) There are a few others that probably work. One of our members makes a cleaning block. There are a few track cleaners that mount under boxcars or dummy diesels; a little bit of cleaning every so often is uaually enough (depends on how dusty the layout room is). Otherwise, a rail cleaning block on a long stick.
