The team is fastidious about cleanliness so the layout is deep cleaned twice a year. The use of chemical cleaners on the track is avoided and oil use is kept to a minimum on locomotives.
Two Dapol cleaner trains are deployed on all main lines before every operating session.
The Dapol Vacuum Train
An in-line wheel cleaner (aka The Jiggy Jiggy) has been installed on the Through Line of the Green Staging Yard. During an operating session each train will have all its wheels cleaned at least once.
