heh train lovers  Roll Eyes  Grin

i don't have a big layout compared to others
but i had some of my tracks oxidize witch i now know and i had to buy a new set.
and now i have everything set up
i want to put some conductive oil on the tracks
so i take some of my liquid i have lying around and instead of manually wiping the entire tracks/ i decided to make a temporary cleaning car.
the first rolling stock i fitted i rubber banded a piece of that soft packing material. not styrofoam but... that soft stuff... it cleaned off dust and such.
the other car i fitted i put some conductive thick liquid on the plastic wheels and i quickly put it on and connected it to my loco and made it drive around
i put my finger on the tracks and i felt a smooth liquid
it worked! it first dusted and then oiled the tracks
and the rolling stock isn't permanently bonded to the cleaning mechanism.

is this a good way? or does anybody have a better idea

Before you put any conductive oil on your tracks you MUST make sure that your track and all of your wheels are CLEAN. 
I have a suspicion that Goo Gone and Rail Zip are a bad combination.
