Conductive Contact Lube (1 Fluid Ounce)

We all know the benefits to be had from keeping our model railway locomotives and rolling stock lubricated: smooth running, no squeaks, less wear on the gears and bearings, and potentially more reliable pickup of power from the wheels to the motor or decoder in locomotives. In damp environments, oil can provide some protection against corrosion of metal parts.

But not everybody is aware that some oils can harm some types of paints and plastics used in model railways, and can be too heavy for use with the relatively delicate model railway gears and bearings.

This product from Bachmann is safe on most plastics and has the added advantage that it promotes the conductivity of the surfaces it is applied to.

Used VERY SPARINGLY on the BACK of locomotive wheels where the pickups rub, (NOT on the wheel treads!) it will help with reliable transfer of power from the wheels. Ensure that there is NO excess of oil that can be spread on top the track otherwise you will have to thoroughly clean your track!
