That loco wheel cleaning post…

Whoa! Stop the press – Jeff mailed me this about my previous post on wheel cleaning:

“If you apply a drop of atf (automatic transmission fluid) to the wheels of all of your rolling stock you eventially will never have to clean them again. Same applies to your track. This works on all gauges. I haven’t cleaned my layout in years.
This was featured in Model Railroader Magazine a couple of months ago.”

Now that’s a great tip!

(You should see his rail layout in his loft – it’s amazing).
