The shopping center train display 'Sodor' area I'm working on will include a narrow guage line. I plan to use Rhenaes and Skarloey on it, alternating them weekly.

Having no experience with them, can someone who operates them on a regular basis give me an idea how often they will need to be serviced? E.g., wheels cleaned, and gears lubricated??

Keep in mind, with kids out of school for the summer, their button will get pushed a lot. So figure 4 - 6 hours a day of stop and go running. The good news is the curves will be 315mm radius, so there won't be a lot of side strain on the mechanisms.

Thanks,
Len

Wheel cleaning I would suggest every second day. Lubrication is usually recommended every 100 hours of running.
