This useful new kit contains all the necessary components required for the maintenance of model locomotives. Included are the Pecolectrics servicing cradle, with separate infills (for when smaller scale models are handled), a bottle of Powerlube, and the new brush and scraper tools. These last two items have been redesigned, in a similar fashion to the recently reintroduced probe. The new easier-to-use brush and handy scraper tool, for cleaning and removing unwanted pieces of dirt and fluff from the mechanisms, both come included with separate hooks for hanging on a workbench. Although currently only available as part of this kit, these two new items will eventually be supplied separately.

These Pecolectrics products have been part of the modeller's repertoire for many years, and by packaging them together you can now offer this handy kit to modeller's who are looking for a convenient product to use for maintenance of their expensive models. The individual items will, of course, remain available separately, so can be replaced as and when needed.

A new multi-gauge loco-lift design is being developed by Peco to replace the OO/HO-only SL-43.

The concept behind the new loco lift design is that it will be adjustable, suitable for N, OO-9, HOn3, HOm and OO/HO trains. The units will require some assembly, but being very easy to construct the modeller can set the gauge according to their needs. A basic single unit loco-lift, PT-60, will accommodate a small OO/HO locomotive such as an 0-6-0 shunter or tank engine, but adjusted for N scale a longer locomotive such as a Pacific type will fit very easily. A twin-unit PT-61, comprising two single units which are designed to be joined will be perfect for longer OO/HO locomotives, or even a short train when adjusted for N.
Peco expect to be releasing these new loco-lift units during the summer.

Clean track and locomotive wheels are essential for reliable running on any model railway. Track cleaning rubbers are useful to remove heavy dirt and corrosion from the rails, while the axle-hung pads polish your tracks as the trains run. Locomotive driving wheels can quickly be cleaned using Pecos' wheel cleaning brush.
Lubrication is also essential for bearings, the Expo oiler is especially useful for placing a drop of oil into the wheel bearings on coaches and wagons. Always refer to the manufacturers' maintenance leaflet for oiling points on locomotives, most manufacturers have copies of these available on their web sites.
