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.ï¿½ 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.
