This is not a normal rate of buildup.

You say this does not happen when the track is off.... so does this mean that battery powered trains don't do this?


Can you replicate this with the loco alone? Some locos have terrible metal wheels that arc like crazy and make a greasy black buildup... please indicate the loco you are using and how clean the wheels are and if they clean up shiny or sort of mottled.

Greg
Good points Greg, I will try to make a battery setup and see if there is any difference.
The engine is a Anni. it can pull up to 20 cars before it starts to slip, although even with 14 , i guess there could be some arcing going on.

OK so i have 90 foot of brass indoor track powered by a 10amp controller connected at one terminal point.. Currently running 14 cars with all metal wheels. And each time i run it, even for just 1 or 2 passes, a black tarry film builds up on the rails.  Now i assume this is some sort of electrolysis with the brass because it doesn't build up when the track is off. So how do i attack this?
Use No-Ox?
Transmission fluid?
Brasso?
OR
Just get used to cleaning and be this guy ?

RC battery running is definitely in the future of manufacturers in model railroading. But when i don't know.
Interestingly, the very first Big Haulers were actually RC battery powered.

There is definitely a reemergence of growing interest in G scale trains in the US. In fact, I bet, if Bachmann made just one TV commercial featuring large scale, it would be very profitable for them.

Well, that's 1. Keeping my eye out for more.

Thanks  Smiley
