I've read about some folks getting small stainless or brass tube-brushes from McMaster-Carr  for cleaning the insides of Standard & O-gauge tubular track, where the pins seat.

Does anyone have suggestions for a good working brush diameter for said brushes ?

Thanks !

There is a type of Pipe Cleaner that is rigid with stiff bristles.  You can dip it in alcohol and it fits tightly into O gauge tubular track and does some good at cleaning;
