I was going through the new Micro-Mark catalog last night. Page 102 has Neolube, an Alcohol and Graphite based metal darkener.

Has anyone used this, and is it a concern for Live Steam locos? I was thinking it would be cool for weathering and aging. Who wants a loco that looks Brand New?

Kent, I use Neolube on wheels, motionwork, smokeboxes, and wherever it seems appropriate. All drivetrain parts on my Shay, for example. If it wears/rubs off, simply recoat it. I have a few old miniature paintbrushes reserved for applying it, and it can be removed with alcohol if you don't like it.
Been using it for over 40 years, since my HO days. Tommy Piccarillo of MicroMark started stocking it at my suggestion, after my other retail source dried up.

Larry,

Well, I think you most definately answered my question. I will be calling tomorrow and getting a bottle. And since I'll be paying for shipping, I might as well pick up the Rustall System.

Thank you.
