    Wow! I have learned a lot here. Our friends on the N Gauge Forum came out with similar great responses. I think the main ones are cleaning track, cleaning wheels and stripping paint. Don't inhale fumes for long periods and don't drink it.

    Glad I got it now. I have some other names for it as well, just in case I run out. Also, I'm amazed the airline let me get on a plane with it! It was in checked luggage, but I'm not sure they should have let it go on the plane!!!!

    I wanted to suggest ethanol, but wasn't quite sure how it would work with these uses. Good to know!

    It's also great in an airbrush to clean your motors with. The armatures and shafts and gears before re lining the loco.

    I tried a shot of that once on a dare when I was young and stoopid. I thought my face was melting.

    It has an affinity for water so it is diluted very easily and in the case of an accidental fire, it can be put out easily with water.
