I bought some Walthers smoke fluid to use for my steam loco. Ever since I started using it, I haven’t seen any sort of smoke out of it since I bought the stuff. What am I doing wrong? I put in the right amount of the stuff and the wheels for the pickups are nice and shiny so it should be getting sufficient power. Although the track is a bit nasty with the electrical black stuff. 🤷‍♂️

If your tires pick up enough power to run the loco and lights, it's also getting enough to run the smoke generator. However, if I'm wrong, cleaning the bearing surface of the rails is a good idea.

It's either gummed up or its not working for some reason....burnt out filament or wire broken...no sure.
