Well, the Atlas car is basically the Tomix car with a new color scheme and
new price tag ;-D
It vacuums, grinds and wet-cleans .... 3 functions for the price of one,
it's DCC compatible, and in combination with a bottle of Tomix rail
cleaner you're basically sure your track will stay clear ....
I use one once a week to clean my tracks, (first a couple rounds of
vacuuming to get the dust off), then I wet-clean the track with some Tomix
Track Cleaner for a couple rounds and everything runs like clockwork :-D
Total time (for a 250x80cm layout; one lap is ~ 14 meters) for cleaning -
5-8 minutes ...
As fas as I'm concerned, can't go wrong on the Tomix one ...

I would not want to be without it. None of the Aztec cleaners that I
have, nor the centerline come close. My track now runs like the day I
put it down. I use the Tomix fluid as well as the original Tomix car.
