Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) boxcar.
Model: Two-axle boxcar with built-in track cleaning equipment. The rails are cleaned by two cleaning blocks mounted parallel to one another on the underside of the car. These two cleaning elements are separately mounted. The car has spoked wheels. Minimum radius for operation 600 mm / 23-5/8". Length over the buffers 27.5 cm / 10-13/16".
The track cleaning car is very useful to run in a train. Two flexible cleaning elements are mounted between the axles, and they wipe dust and dirt from the rails. Always have the track cleaning car in a train so that your track stays clean and so that the locomotives on your layout have good electrical contact with the track.
