Thanks, Kevin. I'll check with both retailers.

If you've also used denatured alcohol and/or lacquer thinner to clean tracks, how do they compare to the CRC 2-26? And is "CRC" an acronmyn for the cleaner's name or the name itself?

CRC 2-26 works best as an electrical conductive after the track is cleaned. This stuff works great. It will improve performance along your
layout. Amazon has it also. Well worth the cost.

I've tried Lacquer Thinner once or twice; IMO it isn't enough better than Isopropyl (Rubbing) Alcohol to justify the extra cost and toxicity. Same reasons apply to Denatured Alcohol.

Rail Zip is another commercial product used to help improve electrical contact. I have purchased both that and the Wahl hair clipper oil and they both work well. A MUCH cheaper substitute is automatic transmission oil. A quart or litre will last a lifetime so you can share with your friends as well!
