I cleaned some old Hornby steel track about a month ago and polished the rails until they were nice and shiny.
The bits of track have been stored in plastic bags in a cardborad box and when I took them out today they were rusty and looked even worse than before I cleaned them.
The corrosion came off easily with a couple of wipes from a track rubber so it wasn't as bad as it looked.
What am I doing wrong?!
