Over time the bright metal plating on the surface of the Hornby track rails and Hornby locomotive wheels will oxidise and collect a layer of oils and dust resulting in a rough and high resistance surface. The high resistance will reduce the performance of any Hornby train while the rough surface will cause increased ware to the locomotive wheel running surfaces.

There's nothing more frustrating than to have your favourite locomotive stall at the far end of the layout due to dirty track or dirty pick up wheels.

These polishing pads are abrasive and are ideal for cleaning your dirty, tarnished and rusty Hornby track and locomotive wheels. These non-woven pads are re-useable and washable and are approximately 50mm x 100mm. Manufactured from a plastic fibre coated in an abrasive material there is no risk of producing a short circuit in the track in the way that wire wool or steel wool does.

  • The grey fine grade is for regular use to remove dust, debris and light tarnish from the track rails and locomotive wheels.
  • The green medium grade is for use to renovate tarnished track and locomotive wheels, not for regular use.
