PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT - Gaugemaster Wheel Cleaning Brushes

Matt Lovell

MATT LOVELL looks at these new wheel cleaning brushes.

Wheel Cleaning Brushes

Keeping wheels clean on locomotives has always been an issue, effecting realistic or slow running. Whilst there are lots of products on the market to aid keeping the wheels clean Gaugemaster have released a new and easy to use cleaner which just sits on the track.

How It Works

The wheel cleaner has two brass contacts which sit on the top of the rails.

Wheel Cleaning Brushes

These contacts are linked to the two brushes on the top which pass the electricity to the locomotive wheels. Carefully place the locomotive on the top of the brass brushes.

Wheel Cleaning Brushes

Lightly holding the locomotive in place; apply power to the track and the wheels will start to rotate and the brushes will clean the wheels.

Wheel Cleaning Brushes

Tip: It's best not to use the wheel cleaning brush on locomotives with traction tyres as it may damage them. Our GM47 and GM50 Wheel Cleaners are less abrasive.

Larger Locomotives

If you have a longer locomotive than 105mm you can connect two of the GM60 cleaners together to form a longer cleaner.

This is done by using the male and female connectors on the side of the cleaners.

Wheel Cleaning Brushes

Simply slide the two cleanerís together (bottom to top) and place on the track.

Wheel Cleaning Brushes

Smaller Gauges

The same style of cleaner is available in N scale (GM59) however this version does not have connectors to increase the length.

Wheel Cleaning Brushes

This cleaner can also be used on Z Scale as the contacts are wide enough to sit on both Z and N gauge track

Wheel Cleaning Brushes

A great product which should be in every railway modellerís tool box.
