  • HOn30 track cleaning car

    Part of my Modeler's ADD that is taking time away from my HOn30 70 tonner conversion is the finishing track cleaning car based on an AZTEC N scale track cleaner. Photos posted shortly.

    Here are some photos of the almost complete HOn30 track cleaning car. As I mentioned, it's built around an AZTEC N scale track cleaning mechanism, which I got cheap at a train show years ago. I started on the car over a year ago, but as things would have it, MADD set in, and I've worked at it off an on.

    The body is a Kennebunk Models 24 ft HOn30 kit that I've had lying around for years, and is long out of production. I shimmed the track cleaning mech with strips of Evergreen styrene to get a friction fit inside the body.

    The trucks are from Model RR General Store and I used MT 1015 couplers. I still need to add a brake wheel and staff.

        I like it, Jeff. Helpful idea, to since I have an AZTEC track cleaner mechanism laying around.

          Glad to be an inspiration, Bruce. I didn't realize that AZTEC made an HOn3 track cleaner.
