Not having tons of living space I need to try to have any hobby items serve more than one purpose if possible.
So, I need a way to test my loco after cleanings and a way to clean it's wheels and have this Tester / Cleaner be out of the way but handy as well as Wife friendly.
My wife has one of those porcelain collector light houses as well at a SF Cable Car I got her (she loves San Francisco), so I thought I'd my "device" as something that could act as a simple display base as well.
Grabbed a 9 x 12 wood art board I had laying about, put on some stain and clear coat on and then laid some cork bed and track ...
A simple display base for the lighthouse, display teach for her Trolly AND when I need to I just clip on some power and can run a motor.
To clean wheels I tape (blue painters tape) a bit of paper towel over part of the track, put alohol on it and run the wheels on it, done
