Yes, you read the title correctly, "Track Cleaning Fun". As any model railroader can attest track cleaning is normally not fun but in fact a drudge that needs to be done. Having made some tracks cleaning cars last year to supplement my 4 factory built track cleaning cars I decided to put them all to good use and have a boxcar blast. What exactly is a boxcar blast on the New York Central Layout? Well, I'll tell you. Having a bit of Lightning Stripe fever I exchanged the Penn Central worms for the New York Central lightning stripes. I then pulled out a bunch of pre-Penn Central era 40' and 50' boxcars including the famed NYC Pacemaker fleet.Car body diesels were then assigned as the motive power.
