Are we having fun yet?

 

Testtraxx wheel cleaning supplies are as simple as this! My favorite wheel and rail cleaner with a bulk pack of patches...

***

Testraxx is used to clean one axle at a time. The patch is wetted on one end with a few drops of cleaner...

***

Testraxx and the Benson are ready. The patch is then placed on top of one carriage and the engine is carefully set into place upon it...

***

Testtraxx carriage and wheel closeup. Gentle pressure downwards  from you above, helps to make electrical contact on the back driver. This allows your engine to operate and clean the front tires which sit in the fluid on the patch in the groove between the bearings...Whew!!!

***

Testtraxx is able to quickly clean off that built up dirt. When you are done with your first one, turn the patch around and put it on top of the next carriage...clean another set of wheels...

***

Testtraxx leaves no doubt as to its effectiveness. The proof is in/on the patch...so to speak...me bad...me bad...

***

Testtraxx and the dirt which came off of all four axles on this Benson. Did the dirty little Shay run better? You betcha!!!

***

Testtraxx does it all. All the materials needed to be a wheel cleaning pro...

***

Testtraxx uses the same cleaner as my CMX track cleaning car. I use the same cleaner I put in my CMX track cleaning car...simplifies things and it is NON-FLAMMABLE...

 

***

It actually is that easy...

***

 Important for your SAFETY

***

Please be certain that your cleaner is NON-FLAMMABLE as there are small electrical sparks created at times in this process.

***

...POOF...

***

...and then there are those who are going to do what they do...

***

...and because of that...

***

"I told you so!!!"
