At a train show in Santa Clara California this past weekend I doubled my roster of K-Line steamers (to 2). I now own a K-Line Mikado with TMCC and a K-Line NYC Hudson with TMCC.
Overhauling these engines has revealed that the Mike has a ratio of 22 revs of the motor to one rev of the drivers...
Is it ok to use mineral oil in a Marx
666 smoke unit? I've heard people
say it makes really good smoke and
cost a lot less than smoke oil from
Hobby shops but I don't want to risk
damaging my smoke unit which is
original and works quite well as is.
