DTCOO OO GAUGE TRACK CLEANING MACHINE

OO gauge track cleaning tank wagon with UK couplers. A tow along twin bogie tank wagon with a cleaning pad for use with track cleaning fluids. 
This is substantial enough to give your track a good clean but  light enough to be easily handled by almost any UK outline locomotive. 
It includes tools for its adjustment and filling and has UK tension lock couplings. There are also spare cleaning pads. These can be washed off and reused several times.
It's mode of operation is to fill it with your favourite suitable track cleaning fluid, adjust the tension on the pad and open the feed valve to allow thew cleaner to drip on the pad whilst you then tow it around your layout cleaning your track as you go.
When you've finished close the feed valve and the filler plug to prevent fluid loss and that's it, job done 'til the next time.

This track cleaner is not suitable for use by children under 12 years of age

Operating Instructions

Before using our track cleaner for the first time PLEASE read all the recommendations and instructions thoroughly.

The cleaning pad is fitted by clamping the clips onto the slider pad, found between the bogies, with the velvet side towards the track.  Before putting fluid into the tank, do a dry run around the track to ensure the pad is making light contact with the rails.   If adjustment is required adjust the screws found under the pad up or down accordingly.   

The cleaning pads can be washed with detergent and re-used many times.

Remove the brass fill cap screw (on the end of tanker) by turning anti-clockwise.   Dispense about 10cc of track cleaning fluid into the tank - using the syringe with the blunt needle attached.  Replace fill cap screw but leave slightly open to allow air to vent into the tank.  Slightly open the valve found on top of the tank, using the screwdriver provided, and adjust the drip rate.   When the drip rate is adjusted correctly, the cleaning pad will be slightly damp, not soaking.  If too wet, then adjust the valve accordingly.  Allow a few minutes of running time for the pad to become damp.  Remember to screw this down tight after use, to avoid evaporation or spilling during transportation. The track cleaner is now ready to run and can be pushed or pulled.  If using very small engines it may be necessary to double head. 

SOLVENT OPTIONS: -  It is recommended that you use Isopropyl Alcohol, Googone or Servisol Super 10 only with this track cleaner. Other solvents can be very aggressive and could melt plastic components on the machine or on your layout in general as it goes round the track.  Always observe the manufacturers’ precautions.

ON NO ACCOUNT USE NAIL VARNISH REMOVER, THINNERS, ACETONE, PETROL, TOLUENE OR XYLENE.   

Use in well ventilated areas.  

DO NOT SMOKE OR USE NAKED FLAMES WHILST FILLING.
