Thanks for posting these instructions; I bought a second-hand unit at the Locomotion Toy & Model Fair yesterday, and wasn't at all sure how to use it.  I notice that the spare discs seem to be available on an exchange basis; do you know anything about this, please?
Kind Regards,
SheldonC

That just means "replacement discs", not some sort of return for exchange scheme!

Thanks for that.  I've now looked at "a certain on-line auction site" and found they are available from a number of sources at a variety of prices, but I've not found anything for the cleaning fluid.  In spite of what the instructions (not unexpectedly) say about using other products, do you know if IPA/isopropanol/isopropyl alcohol or something else will do the job?

Thanks again,

SheldonC

the Hoover is the best function - the liquid cleaner is less effective ( search Tomix Cleaner here)

a small high strength magnet glued in the slot underneath is useful for collecting the loose bits of metal that fall off trains!!

I read that the best cleaner to use with the Tomix, is the Dapol " Track Cleaning Fluid". which I bought direct from Dapol.

Dapol sell the Tomix under their own brand name so it should be best. I wouln't use IPA as the unit is plastic, it might damage it.
