I have a Lionchief Plus Great Northern 171 4-6-4 Model 6-84937. I've had the engine for about a month.
When I add the recommended 15-20 drops of smoke juice, the train smokes a lot for about 15 minutes and then runs out of juice. My "layout" for this train is a loop hanging from my kitchen ceiling and a lot of the time I just want it to run in the background. But I don't want to have to worry about burning out the smoker. So my questions are:
Am I doing something wrong? or is this normal for this train type?
What can I do differently to get the smoke to last longer or to guarantee I won't run out of juice and damage the engine?
Any advice is appreciated!
