Great work on your Flying Scotsman!

Please tell us more about your smoke system. Is it your design? I am sure the problems with it can be worked out, or you could make a new design for it.

Joe.

The photo shows the first smoke generator with 0.2mm wire, 5
Ohms. This smoked very strong, but the locomotive did not drive.

The video shows the second generator with 0.1 mm wire, 15 Ohms. As you can see, he smokes very weakly, but the locomotive drives.
In T Gauge a smoke generator will work only digitally, if you have a decoder that is small enough and delivers 0.5A for the smoke generator.

Here is the smoke generator with 0.2mm wire and 5 ohms:

As smoke substance, I use the viscous UHU Superglue SUPER.
It burns to white powder, which can be easily removed with a brush.

Thanks for posting pictures, and the video of your smoke generator. I agree that a decoder should work to power the smoke unit.

Hi Uwe,

Can you share some of your techniques on how you are building your beautiful locomotive bodies.
What type, and thickness of material are you using?
I know you mentioned that you are using a small scissors to cut out parts. How are you getting smooth edges on the body parts?
How are you assembling the parts, glue or solder?
Are you hand painting them?

Thanks, Joe.
