Can anyone tell me if using graphite to lube a turnout actuator is a bad idea or not ? I've got a number of older Atlas Snap Switch turnouts controlled by a solenoid actuator. The plastic pieces inside the actuator seem to always get gummed up over time to the point they no longer move. The latest lube I tried was EZ Lube which I think reacted with the plastic and became gummy. I've been experimenting with an old turnout on my work bench using graphite powder as a lubricant. I took everything apart and removed all the old lubes and cleaned thoroughly. Then added a very small amount of graphite inside the actuator and in the links to the track section that moves. So far this is looking like a good solution. Hoping I have not overlooked an obvious problem.
