So I received my Big Boy and plan on getting it unboxed and running today. I think I got my track where I need it to accommodate the overhang issue I was worried about.
Sorry to get off my original topic but I'm wondering if this has a standard LC+ 2.0 smoke unit. It has the same generic 15 to 20 drop instructions for smoke fluid which I always start off with around 30 with no issues in my other engines when they are new. Would this engine be the same?Does the smoke fluid go into both stack holes or just where the wicking is visible, which appears to be the aft hole from looking at the pictures hokie71 provided?
If the LC+ 2.0 is the same as my 2009 LionMaster, and I believe it is, there is one smoke unit and it doesn't matter which hole you pour the smoke fluid in. I would say start with 20 drops to avoid possibly over filling the smoke unit and having smoke fluid leak all over you new locomotive! How exciting, new Big Boy on your layout.
