Use of lubricants on Model Railroad track is controversial among modelers. It is a balancing act between better conductivity and reduced traction. I have a DCC system and consistent electrical contact is essential for smooth operations. A few drops of CRC 2-26 on the rails makes for a big improvement. It also helps with unreliable contact between delicate copper wipers and tiny wheels. Products are sold specifically for model railroad use, but in my experience 2-26 works better and is much less expensive.

If you use WD40 to clean switches, slides, contacts ect...?The silicone base can cause a salting effecting when in contact with water based solutions like Isopropyl (rubbing) Alcohol. This effect will add resistance. It it also can attack plastics and is flammable. Iso alcohols as in most alcohol products are water based formulas. Depending on the ratio of water in the solution it can cause oxidization and rust to metal parts based on drying time.Deoxit is a fine contact cleaner in many solution forms but very costly.This is an excellent cost prohibitive alternative product.

I agree 100% with the previous review. I have a 10 year old NHT sub with a separate amp and the volume pot was a big mess. It was so loud with pops and crackles. It would go from zero to full volume with just a minor twist. CRC 2-26 solved the problem. It works great for electrical jobs on older pots that have become corroded.DO NOT USE CONTACT CLEANER, please.
