I've inherited a Marklin K setup. The metal parts of the
track are oxidized (covered in white powder, plating is
Zn? Sn?) and don't make good electrical contact. What can
I do to clean up the track?
A previous posting on this n.g. suggested MAAS, available in
Walmart for cleaning wheels. Is liquid wrench OK? (good for iron,
but I don't know what it does on the plating on the K track).
Alternately I was thinking of brushing on ammonia or vinegar
with a tooth brush.
