A dirty track can be the biggest frustration of running trains on your
layout. If your train’s headlight “flickers” when running down the
track, that is a sure sign your “DCC packets” are not getting through
Also on most layouts of any size, 80% of your track is within reach
and cleaned by hand, but what about the other 20%? Need a step stool
or to crawl around underneath

#1) Just apply a few drops of the Labelle 105 Track Cleaner and run kit
around Your trackage for about 15 circuits.
#2) Clean off the Pad with a paper towel. Re-wet with more Labelle Track
cleaner and do another 15 circuits.
#3) You will notice the Labelle 105 leaves a film of Lubricant on the top
of the rails.. THAT’S GOOD. That film will help your trains run more
smoothly. Labelle 105 is a “Dielectric” fluid that allows better
conductivity for your DCC trackage.
#4) If the film is more or less “clear” you are good to go.
If the film is still dirty looking, repeat Steps #1 and #2 until
the film on the rails is “clear.
Even if your track is fairly clean, running the track cleaning car
with a bit of Labelle 105 on the Pad for a couple of loops just before
every operating session will improve the running of your locomotives.
