I am trying to test everything on my MTH 4-8-4 PS2 but I only have a short piece of track. Got to see it move about 3 feet, check all the lights and all the sounds. I can not get the smoke unit to work. Been so long since I used it, I can't remember, should it produce smoke even at a standstill? There is plenty of fluid, smoke is ON and set at Max. Any ideas? Thanks, Chuck
Yes, it should produce smoke anytime, including at standstill. Also, as soon as you hear a chuff, you should see a puff of smoke.
Turn the volume all the way off and see if you hear the fan pulsing as you slowly move.
Thanks Gunrunnerjohn, that was the perfect last test. I did not hearing any fan pulsing. So, I plan to sell the set without working smoke. Other than that it is pretty good shape and all the other functions work fine. Any idea of price for a Rail King Imperial set of PS2 4-8-4 in SP Daylight and 4 matching passenger cars?? There are 23 hours run time on the clock. Thanks again, Chuck
I don't really have an idea on price, I'd check auctions like eBay for recent sales.
