I have one or two as well. It's also one of my best runners and the best loco to push my tomex track cleaner
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Hi Steve, I have only used the vacuum on the Tomix as I've not finished my layout yet. The vacuum works really well and from other posts on the forum, the cleaner works very efficiently as well.

i currently have 2 class 37s, that green one and a loch eil from TMC, which will be getting sound fitted tomorrow!

i use loch eil on track cleaning/ snow plough duties.

the track cleaner i think is great, i have mine DCC so the hoover option has gone for me, but i tend to use the grinding pads.

i start by using the woodland scenics track cleaner stuff to get the thick off, then i use the tomix track cleaner before ending with the final cleaning solution. never had any problems yet

I've DCC converted mine too and the hoover works just fine.

Does the polishing head work OK? If so then swap the disk with the polishing pad for the disk with the slots in it - it then acts as a hoover.

+1 from me! Had my green 37 resprayed by Grimy Times into BR blue, and alongside my Farish 'Warships', one of the best performing diesels I own.
