I'm looking to purchase new, HO steam locos that are DCC equipped AND generate smoke. I think only MTH and Broadway Limited meet this requirement. I've purchased 2 brand new in-the-box locos from MTH within the past month and had problems with both of them out of the box. They both made some noises but on both locos all of the lights did not work properly and neither would even move despite the fact that I have the MTH DCS controller system. I do have a MTH diesel that works just fine. At this point I'm DONE with MTH steam locos. Does anyone have any good experience with Broadway Limited steam locos and their smoke generation?


Loveably weird
My Athearn Genesis Big Boy has the capability to have a smoke unit added. I don't smoke, and neither do my loco's, so I can't comment on it any more than that.
