Don't use meths. Get some IPA with at least 90% alcohol content and simply apply to a piece of fine cloth or piece of kitchen roll and just rub along the rail and you will be amazed at the dirt that comes off. Try to avoid abrasive solutions as you only create more scratches to catch more dirt. IPA is available from local chemists or ebay works out the cheapest option. Alittle goes along way. Great for cleaning loco wheels as well.
