Reply to "Reproduction Smoke Pellets"

Hi Bill,

That is interesting.  I didn't think anyone was making the original ones.  The pure chemical is fairly expensive.  The person at Lionel that supplied them extracted the chemical from a commercially available waxy material.  The waxy material consists of 3 isomers (structures) of the same chemical formula.  Two of the isomers have a very high melting point while the third isomer is drastically lower.  It is the lowest melting material that was isolated and then pressed into pellets.  This material was about 60% of the combined isomers so I guess he got pretty good yield.  He sure did make a lot of them over the years!
