What conductive lube to use?
« on: October 18, 2017, 11:05:31 am »
Hi all,

Looking at the Bachfar Castle maintenance sheet it says to use conductive lube for the wheel bearings.  I have normal loco lube but it's not conductive, so what would people suggest?

Cheers

Stu

Peco Power Lube PL-64.   I have a small bottle of this for just such occasions - split chassis with axle bearing pickups etc.

Just the tiniest amount though, don't go mad.    It's not as thick as the old Electro Lube I used to have decades ago, but it'll still pick up crud.
