Replacement for original electric loco's smoke fluid(?)

Post by PBinLosAngeles » Sat Jun 03, 2017 12:20 am

Greetings once again everyone.....
Hope I'm not asking anything TOO stupid, but I was given a few old smoke stacks (ART P/N 29300) and have tested them very briefly in Sierra car stoves I know are working.....While they warm, I have no way of seeing if they'll produce smoke and I haven't been able to find any Aristo NOS Smoke Fluid to buy...
So, two questions from the newbie/layman here; I and I know the smoke produced - even optimally - is minimal:
Is there a fluid or material I can add to these stacks to actually see if they'll smoke?
And two, is there a way to test these plug in stacks withOUT having to have a working stove?
Hate to bug the pros with trivia, but this IS thee place to inquire - Thanks in advance.....
Paul...

Have you tried to source the Massoth smoke and cleaning fluid ? Which is a replacement for the LGB that is also no longer produced.

Massoth Smoke and Cleaning Fluid, 250ml
ex. $18.90 plus shipping
p/n 8412501
packaging looks similar to lgb except it is (now) blue !


Another us-based online vendor also lists the Piko brand of smoke fluid p/n P36210 (cheaper), too !
