Notes:

"Bullfrog Snot" is a sophisticated, specially formulated, room temperature curing, one-part "green" liquid plastic with very unique properties. It was concocted and brewed by a veteran N-scaler specifically to be the ideal solution for improving traction on model railroads, but it can surely apply to numerous other quirky little problems (Monorails, turntables, slot cars, Lego wheels, driveshaft couplings on engines and switch machines, as a DCC insulator, sewing machines, etc.) left to be discovered by your creative fertile imagination.
