I know, I searched the archives and came away empty handed. What I’ve been doing for years is Goo Gone with a Q-tip. Plastic wheels are a pain with the black crud and while the Goo Gone works – well, I’m tired. I don’t think the Dremel tool on plastic wheel is a good idea because of heat. Metal wheels aren’t as bad. What about traction tires? I found out the hard way you don’t use Goo Gone on rubber.
I am finding like ten hours on a display layout and things get pretty dirty. And this is starting with super clean track and wheels. It is all starting to feel like lawn mowing to me. You just get finished and it’s time to start again…
Is there a better way? I know a lot of you run Flyer, what do you do? Maybe I need to rethink this.
