Bringing it back cause this is all I could find about rusty rails.
I have some orange and black track that has rust on the rails.
This track was not rusty... Tyco TCR and I used 600 grit and on the pick ups too. Everything was shiny, then in a couple days they did not look so good anymore.
Is there anything that can keep the rails from oxidizing? or
Does the arcing from the pick ups dirty the rails?
Do you put anything on the rails after cleaning them?
What about cleaning the track itself, what do you use?
I have used something called Zip rail a while back.
Also have some DeoxIT from Caig Labs.
Seems nothing works.
Maybe I should not clean stuff with Simple Green, except for RC offroad tires. I heard it is a little acidic, never knew that.
