I have an 8206 Hudson that I got at a show many years ago and put it away and forgot it. I just put it on the Christmas tracks for the first time in many years. I do not have the instructions. Is this pellet or fluid smoke? I put fluid in it and it smoked a lot but then I got more of a burning smell.  I do notice the element looks very orange and hot. Is that ok?

The sound board doesn't function well but I can still run it except for that



Thank you



David

Thank you so much for the input. I just joined OGR and already realize what a great resource it is.

I will pull the shell and find an 8141 smoke element for replacement.

Unfortunately, I probably fried the sound board. I pulled the shell off the tender and I assume all the "dust" below the board used to be foam.

This is my first MPC engine and I have learned a lesson the hard way.

Fortunately, a fried sound board does not prevent the 8206 from running.

I've fixed the smoke unit. It works well.

Now on to the ERR sound board. I may decide to do a replacement of the old board.

My question is what controls the  ERR real sounds board? I am using a ZW to run trains conventionally.  Will I need to incorporate the Lionel sound activation button to access the ERR capabilities.



I'm slowly and cautiously getting into this process.



Thanks again



David
