Flangeway Cleaning Tool

For my industrial layout the centre of the track will be filled with clay and embossed to represent setts. There must be a gap between the clay and the rails to allow the wheel flanges to run inside the track.

I created this tool from plasticard. Pushing it along the rails should remove enough clay to create a gap for the wheel flanges.


    • Hi Chris, That’s a really neat solution. I may try that 👍. Jokingly – In theory my scraper does both rails at the same time so it should be twice as quick, but that’s just theory 🙂 I bet you are much quicker at this than me !
