Cleaning Rails

I'm sorry, I know this has been done to death, but I can't find an answer to my specific problem.

I must have cleaned my classic track at least half a dozen times in the last couple of months. My latest method is loosen the crud with a Scotchbrite pad, rub contact cleaner into the rails, go over it with the Scotchbrite again, moisten a clean lint-free cloth with clean WD40 and rub it on the rails then wipe the rails with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth until the cloth will run along the rail and come off clean.

STILL I'm getting dirty braids in 10-15 laps. If I run one car for 50+ laps without cleaning the braids it noticably slows the more laps it does.

What am I doing wrong?

Dump the wd40, use inox. All your problems will disappear.
They were setting up a dealer in the UK (Wales) but its gone a bit quiet. The websitewas up for a short time but is down currently.
