Plumbob's track cleaning tube

Jim made us up a 4 inch ABS tube with plastic end caps to clean ballast off our used track. We put all the dirty track removed in our latest upgrades in the tube and filled it with soapy water and a bit of alcohol. After a week of soaking the track was removed.  most of the ballast had fallen off, but where paint had stuck to the ties it need coaxing with a stiff brush.

All this track was cleaned in one shot.
