Suck it and see

Model Rail (UK) - - Workbench -

Black & Decker’s Dust­buster is very handy. It needs to be left on charge when not in use, and if used with pow­dery ma­te­ri­als, the fil­ter will need fre­quent clean­ing.

My weapon of choice for clean-up jobs on the lay­out is this brush at­tach­ment to the hose of the house­hold vac­uum cleaner. It has a soft brush and plenty of suc­tion.

A cheap bat­tery-op­er­ated mini-vac­uum that I bought off ebay. I’m think­ing of ex­chang­ing it for some­thing more use­ful... like a cho­co­late teapot.

Thanks to the lo­cal house­fly prob­lem, I find that my track needs vac­u­um­ing a cou­ple of times a year. Oc­ca­sion­ally this may lead to the need for lo­calised re-bal­last­ing.
