    I tried Technical Q & A and got no response, so I'll try here. I run Aristo-Craft and LGB on ovals about 4 X 18, averaging about 6 hours a day 5 days a week. Is it normal for track to get pretty dirty in a weeks time? I have all metal wheels, and solid brass track. I clean with alcohol real good, dab a trace of Wahl Clipper oil, and they run great. After 4-5 days running, the track seems to start getting pretty black. Is that a problem?

    This is at a pediatric clinic, so I can;t get to it every day.
