• Good review, Pierre. I saw the LUX models at Intermodellbau Dortmund this year and was impressed. I look forward to get both the grinder and vacuum cleaner cars sometime this year. Thanks for the tip about getting the latest LUX model.

    For LUX 9470 model, there are 2 accessories – 9417 soft feld, 9418 hard grit (sand-paper-like). The 9418 should be good for removing tough dirts.

    Have you tested both?

    • I haven’t. I am using the soft ones, and they work very well (which means, sadly, they get dirty quickly).
      If there is a deep cleaning to do, I prefer to do it manually, and not erode the track with sand-paper cleaners. Personal choice though !

      I use 2 LUX 9470’s — one cleaning/one polishing — followed by a vacuum unit — very efficient !! I flip the polishing pads on the polish
      wheels — doubles the life !!
