Recently opened a box of my Lionel trains and found many of the plastic cars covered with a thin layer of mold. Any ideas on how to remove the mold without damaging or scarring the surface or paint on the cars? Thanks

Dawn dish soap in some warm water, it should wipe right off. Use a soft rag to gently wash them.
Take care around any lettering.
Blow dry with a hair dryer, just warm air.

What works good is an old toothbrush with soft bristles. You can get into the crevices. Old toothbrushes come in handy for other things, I save all mine and boil them, then I put them in with my trains cleaning supplies. Q tips, cotton balls, and some toothpicks go in there too.
Like I said just take care around lettering and decals.
