Lionel 3927 Track Cleaning Car

HarmonyYards has rebuilt a 3927 for me; it's on its way; here are some videos.  Many thanks to Pat.  He took some before and after pictures of the rebuild that I will post later.  That is now one fine machine!

Folks, here are pictures of what HarmonYards did to refirb a 3297 he snagged for me; he took the pictures in sequence as he was doing the work from worn out to reborn;  1956 Lionel lives; first rate work; many thanks to HarmonYards for his and also the previous pics from Scraphanger:Image00001Image00002Image00003Image00004Image00005Image00006Image00007Image00008Image00009Image00010Image00011Image00012Image00013Image00014Image00015Image00016

Now when you add the tanks, sponge and cylinder it will look complete and brand new.

Yes, I have them - bottles and pads - found on the Bay.  Now for the cleaning solution - much has been written in a few threads:

Fantastic, 409, mineral spirits, isopropyl 91, and on the Bay: Ultra Pure, Bachmann, and Aero Car (lays down a non-slippery conductive film that will improve current flow).  Leaning toward 1 of the latter 3.

Don't use mineral spirits or alcohol, it will discolor the orange plastic, (ever notice the while patches in the spare wiping cylinder compartment?) That and with the large surface of the sponge, it presents a fire hazard.          Use 409 or Fantastik, that's what Lionel used.
