    Hi - my first post here, glad to be here!

    Im King Bonk and I just got a train set. Actually I dug up my dad's Lionel set and am slowly piecing together what works, what doesnt, what I got. Its like finding buried treasure! I actually was able to get 2 tracks working - after buying ALL new track. The whiff of ozone when that train started rolling was like being transported back 20 years and i was sitting next to my dad again. Thats what its all about i guess, it never leaves you.

    I have bought new track and have cleaned whatever existing track seemed salvagable. My ZW transformer is a bit dusty, but working. Now I wish to turn to servicing my cars and engines. I seem to remember my dad using cleaners, WD-40 and other implements to clean and maintain. But Im not sure where to begin. So my question: given i have just excavated these trains from a dusty ol garage where they were sitting for a decade, what should i do to clean and restore my engines and cars?

    im excited to find these forums...look forward to hearing from someone...
