Clean, Oil and Assemble Sitdown Trains
Here are some guide lines to follow when you need to clean and oil your roller coaster trains. The sit down trains need to be cleaned and oiled periodically to keep them in top operating condition. Starting with the disassembly of the train by removing the screws from the underside of the train. Once you have your train apart you are ready to start cleaning. First you want to take a Silicone based spray and a small plastic bag or cup. Spray a generous amount of spray into the container so that it will collect in liquid form. Put your metal wheels into the bag with the silicone liquid to soak. Then using Qtips to clean the areas that the wheels were seated in. You also want to use a clean rag with some of the silicone sprayed on it to clean the metal wheels and this is done by rubbing them in the rag. Finally use a new Qtip and apply and leave extra silicone liquid in all the places the metal wheels contact then its time to reassemble the train. Start with the last car by taking a side fin and the bottom section of the train. I hold in my hand and guide a wheel using hemostats to insert the wheel into its place. Flip the section around and grab the other side fin while holding all the pieces together. Insert the second wheel into its proper place and then add the bottom flange being careful not to dislodge either wheel. Then slide the seat section underneath and screw the car together. Once you complete the first section move to the next using the same steps except before adding the final bottom plate you want to insert the ball end from the previous car then assemble.

Clean, Oil and Assemble Inverted Trains
Here are some guide lines to follow when you need to clean and oil your roller coaster trains. The inverted trains need to be cleaned and oiled periodically to keep them in top operating condition. Starting with the disassembly of the train by removing the wheel flanges from the top of the car. Then remove the wheel assembly from the top flange. Each wheel is held in place with a different type of bracket assembly. Open the running wheel bracket and remove the large wheel. Then pry off the bracket of the side wheel and remove the bracket for the other small wheel. Soak each wheel in a bag of silicone liquid and rube clean on a cloth. Take a Q tip and clean and oil the spots where the wheel come in contact with the plastic flanges. Then take a wheel and insert it back into position and install each bracket as required. Making sure the wheels seat properly and all brackets are closed. Then insert the large wheel bracket back into the flange and insert into the bottom flange. Install the wheel flanges back into the top section of the train. Once completed check over the train making sure all wheels spin freely and are in the proper place.
