Just a short video showing how I clean the track. The CMX rubs the track gently with a cloth pad while it drips the Goo Gone onto it from the tank part of the wagon. This is by far the easiest way and the most effective way of cleaning the track, the Goo Gone really gets rid of all the dirt and makes for very smooth running. I never need to use track rubbers or anything else to clean it. This method also cleans the wheels of anything running on the track at the same time, simply have a dirty train following and the Goo Gone on the rails will clean the wheels. The next circit of the cleaning train will then pick up the dirt previously on the wheels off the track.

Hornby / BR InterCity Swallow HST fitted with Dual Olivia’s Trains Sound (1 in each power car) and MK3 coaches.
First run of my new Alco C630M and my new TTX double stack cars. I wasn’t expecting to be filming this, but when it rounded the first corner and made the sound I decided to record it, therefore my apologies for the mess the layout is in, but I didn’t want to miss the flange squeal type sounds comming from the TTX cars. I have had a good look over the cars, and it dosn’t appear to be doing any harm to them. They are meant for wider curves, and I may make some slight adjustments to the layout in places to give them a route around or through it. I bought these for the ‘US’ (yes its a Canadian loco, call it ‘North American’ then) part of my layout which hasnt been built yet, but it would be nice if they had a route through or round the UK part as well.
The loco I bought while I was away up in Canada for several months, its in Canadian National Zebra stripe livery, however it retains its ‘CB&CNS’ identity on the front, making this from the local area (Cape Bretton, Nova Scotia) where I was staying. Thats why I purchaised it, and it is my first Canadian loco.
