A handsome locomotive! The railroads once had “engine wipers”, a laborer position, whose job it was to shine the brass and nickel adornments on the old locomotives. This engine will certainly deserve that kind of attention!

I actually scrub some cars with liquid hand soap and a tooth brush…gently and quickly. You can just dust it off instead or just leave it like it is. The patina makes it interesting.
