Track Cleaner

HO scale railroad, mixing nickel silver and brass rails?

I'm getting into model railroading and just picked up a big box of track off eBay. Some pieces are brass and some are nickel silver. Can I mix them without major problems?

You shouldn't have any problems. I mix brass and nickel-silver on my layout and mine run fine. I haven't seen any corrosion on my rails either.(Except they derail all of the time LOL)
Edit: I should have added this. The electricity shouldn't cause any corrosion problems. The air will. Always, always make sure you have an abrasive substance (preferably an eraser type track cleaning abrasive block) to clean the track. I threw my train set away because I thought it just wore out. It didn't. You have to clean the track often.
