In these parts we have a lot of sand roadside so why not put it to use cleaning train parts. Heck you can cut the grass too.

Introducing my ******* sanblaster.

No offense to the southern constituents.:rolleyes:

You have a great sense of humor, Tman. :laugh:

Sand actually is an excellent way to clean parts. I use a little low pressure hand held sandblaster on model parts all the time. It's a great way to break the shiny surface glaze on black plastic parts, and makes them look just like metal.

The cab, flatbed, and trucks on this little old fashioned plastic Athern 25 ton crane have all been sandblasted and the natural surface is simply left unpainted... :)
