Hey Paul,

       There is a special piece of track that MUST be on the end of the line. Please also check that as it too will cause that problem.

Enjoy,

+Flare,
   I have this track cleaning car in On30 and just Love it.
I only use the pads not the sand paper pads as I think this would be too abrasive,  :

Hey ScottyB,

    I live near Milwaukee (within a half hour) I have been buying my On30 Annual from Green field News & Hobby for the past 4-5 years. You will need to go to the trains section of the "Hobby Shop" not the Magazine section of the "News" stand.   
     http://greenfieldnewsandhobby.com/catalog-new2.html
   I attended Trainfest also. I had a blast as did my Son In-law & Grandson 2 1/2 yrs. old.

Enjoy,

Hey Bobwrgt,

    I was there on Fathers day weekend. The beautiful Narrow Gauge #7 Shay was running and a great ride through the woods it was. We also rode in/on the other gauges of trains. Walking around looking at all the Steam tractors and other steam equipment was Quite an experience to visit. Oh yes the Ice Cream was sooooo Delicious.  Try these sites for info:

 http://hesston.org/       or also try:

http://www.michigancity.com/Hesston/Hesston.html             Also some more (unofficial Info) Great pics too.:
