Track Cleaning

Tracks need to be kept clean, regardless of 2- or 3 conducts!

When the tracks are dirty the locomotives can’t get power because dirt on the track acts as insulation be-tween the wheels and the tracks and prevents contact. The 16,491 meters rails in Wunderland are no longer cleaned by hand; there are cleaning trains on each track. These consist of a double traction regime (two locomotives) pulling 2-4 cleaning cars.
The cleaning cars have a plate of felt or cleaning stone (a kind of eraser) between the axle, which rests on the rail and cleans it. These plates are regularly changed or cleaned.
