My new Lionel Legacy Bog Boy smoked great for a couple of minutes for both stack and whistle smoke. I initially added 20 drops of smoke fluid, split between the two stacks, per the owner’s manual. I tried blowing first into the stacks which really helped smoke output for a couple of minutes, and then blew into the whistle smoke hole which also helped for a minute or two. I then added 5 more drops of smoke fluid to the stacks. Smoke output continued to be less than impressive. When I shut down the engine, quite a bit of smoke slowly wafts out of the stacks. Have I over filled the smoke fluid and caused an air/fluid block in the stack and whistle holes?
Other than these smoke issues, my Big Boy First Edition is gorgeous and runs flawlessly. There are no gloss paint issues on my engine.
