Reply to "ISO Very Tall Industrial Smokestacks"

Yes I wish the Lionel Industrial would smoke more.

Me too!  I explored ways to make that happen, but it's not easy.  The obvious solution is to rip out the anemic smoke unit and replace it.  The MTH PS-1 device comes immediately to mind.  Another choice is to totally gut the insides and put in HarborModels smoke unit (these are made for outdoor boat/ship systems).  The construction of the Lionel stack makes that impossible.

I ended up using PVC and the HarborModels unit.  Here's a test conducted prior to painting and lighting the PVC tube.

Yeah, baby!  That's what I'm talkin' about.
