Dapol B800 Track Cleaning / Polishing / Vacuum Car

Cleaning Fluid B805 now available.

N gauge modellers have benefitted from Japanese model railway technology for many years, including the highly effective Tomix track cleaner car. Dapol have produced a OO/HO version of this track cleaning unit, offering cleaning, polishing and vacuum functions to keep your track in top conditon.

A spelection of tool attachments are supplied, an abrasive pad to remove corrosion and heavy dirt deposits and a polishing pad to clear up and remove fresh deposits. This keeps your track clean, ensuring good electrical connectivity for your trains. Finally the internal motor runs a vacuum system which collects loose dirt and grit from your track, so it won't find its' way into locomotive drive gears. An on-board cleaning fluid reservoir allows a plastic-safe cleaning fluid to be stored and dispensed through the cleaning head, helping to remove grease and oil deposits.

The track cleaner is equiped with an 8 pin DCC decoder socket, allowing DCC users to have full control over the motor speed at all times. An on/off switch is provided for use with DC control so the motor can be shut off when not required.� NEM coupling pockets allow the car to be used with almost any coupling system, including tension lock, knuckle and pocket type couplings.

Please note that the motor drives the track cleaning/polishing and vacuum mechanisms inside the car; the car is not self-propelled and must be hauled or pushed by a locomotive.

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.

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.
