Mine seems plenty loud actually had to turn it down, used Legacy remote for that. It was smoking real good for a while but no smoke now, plenty of fluid, smoke switch on under cab, set remote on smoke high.
Chuffs but no smoke anymore.
Joe..I did notice it was a spitter when there was smoke
I agree the locomotive is a spitter but smoke performance isn't that great. But running on the club layout over the weekend, it was a struggle to hear the locomotive. The K-line pacific I also had with me that day was almost twice as loud. The legacy sd70ace i just got in the spring is much much louder too.
