I've no idea what the winzip is that you are referring to. The only winzip I am aware of is a Windows cmputer program for file archiving and compression.

Roger, it’s a track additive - resembles auto transmission fluid. Not really a substitute for clean track though.

i think winzip is equivalent to Railzip. it has used on the FLMJ... the rails and wheels did get clean, but adheasion was seriously affected.

Very good Stese.! You've spotted this week's (deliberate???) mistake!

Seriously though, sorry about causing confusion. That'll teach me to check facts before making statements!

Re. your comments about causing lack of adhesion, I have found no such problem, & I have been using it for quite some years. Just a thought: maybe I'm not getting adhesion problems because I didn't use it as frequently as you, Stese. That, in turn, could give me dirtier track, which
would cause....................but isn't that where we all came in?

Poor old Dab!

I tried auto-tranny fluid once as a track cleaner and it seemed to improve running so maybe it is conductive. Traction didn’t seem affected on a flat track with short rakes, but that was before I had any locos with traction tyres.

We only had adhesion issues with Railzip on inclines at the FLMJ.
