Have you considered something like gun black for a more permanent blackening than Neolube?
Yes and no. I have thought about it and looked into it. Neo-lube is easy to use, and a good conductor of electricity. I kno littlew about gun blackening, other than it is chemical rather than just physical, like neo-lube, and thus probably harder to put on. Probably it conducts electricity well, too. does it scratch easily, neo lube as a libricant that stays soft does not. the electric pickups on the cars ight scratch, I don't know.

It probably lasts longer, but neo-lube is easy to reapply and works well - and have to do it to the locos I put it on, once every few years. Its a matter of the devil In know versus . . .
