I like the Smell of Coal from my steam engines. I don't have any diesals with smock.

Too bad I can't run my steam at Christmas unless I turn off the smock or I'd get a christmas sent. Sure would nice if I could make'm smell like my grandpa's pipe. Half & Half always filld the house when I was a kid.

I rotate JT's Hot Chocolate and Popcorn.  

 

Still run some Supersmoke Classic Cedar.  It reminds me of my childhood, the wife says it just gives her a headache.

My favorite is smoke that smells like smoke. Spent two hours opening up and replacing the wick in a pre-owned S2 Alco that was contaminated with -- yuch -- vanilla smoke. And it STILL stinks!

I just browsed TJ's and boy what a list. I an going to have to order Grandpas pipe smock.    

Or have to start smocking my pipe again. Sorry Doc's.....

Try eliminator from megasteam. That's what it was made for.

JT's ....

 

Maple Sugar -- the steamer on the Christmas layout

 

Coffee -- in the diner (going to try Beer and Frying Bacon this fall)

 

Diesel Power -- on our layout

 

the PW 2046 stays old school

I like the steam oil scent. All of our steam engines are oil burners.

Does the hot chocolate really smell like hot chocolate? May grand daughter likes her some chocolate. LOL that's what she waits for on the polar express out of Owasso.

I remember moving to my grandpas house. There was this cloud of smock that seemed to linger for hours. Always half & half. Oh yah white owl cigars too.

Why thank you very much Forrest!

I did try it once and my olfactory senses detected that dreadful putrid "classic" smoke aroma. It turned my sinus inside out.

 

Perhaps it was just the residual smoke fluid burning itself out before the NADA smoke fluid could take over. I couldn't take it so OFF the smoke unit went. 

 

If there truly is a scentless smoke fluid, I would be on it faster than Gunrunnerjohn on a faulty O Gauge circuit board! 

No Nada is not totally scentless. It does have a hint of smell that can be detected.

I like seeing them smoke but even with Nada they get shut off after a short while.

To my sense of smell, the NADA has the LEAST odor of the few I have tried. Lionel's is far more tolerable than MTH's regular, which has always smelled like burning rubber to me! Go figure! 

 

Obviously, there are many subjective variables with all of our senses!

That's funny... I smelt enough of that growing up in Motown, or is it Notown now!

I have some JT's Cedar Scent.  Okay, it kinda' smells like cedar.  I also have some JT's Coal-Fired scent.  I can't really smell anything.  I wonder if I got some no-scent that was mislabeled?

Does anybody make some Creosote-scent?  Now, THAT I would pay good money for! 

I haven't used many different variations of the Smoke Fluid, what I typically use is the Mega-steam Diesel , Coal Fired, Cedar Wood, and Hot Chocolate, though the Hot Chocolate is only used in the Polar Express LionChief Train, though I don't get a lot of options to run a Christmas Train.
