Is there anything available in the way of Z Scale track cleaning cars, along the line of Centreline or Woodland Scenics Dust Monkeys.

Aztec used to make their abrasive roller cars in Z, but I don't know if they're still in business.  The cars work quite well in N, and come disguised as boxcars.

If the Centreline car is the one I'm thinking of, you might be able to put Z trucks on it.  I did that with a MT N tankcar. to make a water car for my narrow gauge, and it works fine.

I like that idea, I did that with some roundhouse shorty passenger cars on Micro-Trains Z Passenger trucks and a Life Like SW on an AZL GP35 chassis to make a narrow gauge excursion train.

The Club has a Centreline track cleaner so I can test the theory, thanks for waking up some of my brain cells.
