If you're asking about the Speedy Surface Prep towel it will definitely remove the rail dust, not sure about the tar. My 2014 300C had a lot of rail dust and it worked great. They aren't cheap but it should last a long time. It is so much faster than clay it is amazing.

Mackguy.

Many cars are shipped by rail (remember the railroad) in open rail cars. The brakes on these cars are metal and create rail dust when used. The dust or metal particles can be hot when they come off the brakes and damage the paint when they land on a car.

I use GooGone from Walmart when I dont feel like using a clay bar. Just spray a little on a towel and use a little elbow grease.

GooGone is something ever garage should have, especially if you own a white car. It also removes tar very easily.

The "rail dust" seems to apply to anything that is rusty metal in the paint -not necessarily from rail cars. Heck, my car was made less than 100km from my house and it never saw a rail car. When I got the car (used) it had the rust specks everywhere. The majority was behind the front wheels and rear wheels which makes me think it's also metal from the brakes on the car itself. I used a clay bar to start but it is a lot of work and then tried some "Nevr-dull" which is a polish in a wadding material. It's used mainly for cleaning chrome. Worked great and was a lot easier. I washed the car again after to remove the polish haze. I plan to polish the entire car with a DA next week too. I did not see any damage done to the paint with the Nevr-Dull . There were no scratches either, however, since I was using it outside the intended purpose then it's a "try at your own risk" suggestion.
