Smoke fluid for Postwar Lionel Trains?

Alright, everyone knows how you put the little pellet into the train to make the smoke. Well, I've got three Lionel Postwar steamers (671 Turbine, 2056 Hudson and late 2026 Prairie if it helps), and I was wondering if I could use Lionel smoke fluid in them. It takes a long time for the pellets to melt, and the next time you run the train, you have to wait for the smoke element to heat up before it starts smoking.

So, can you use Lionel smoke fluid in Postwar trains? And will it have faster results if you can?

Yes, you can use smoke fluid(Lionel or any of the other popular brands).

Don't use more than 2-3 drops at a time, as the postwar smoke units don't really have a mechanism to retain the fluid. More than 2-3 drops, and you'll end up leaking fluid all over the track.

I'm curious as to your comment about the pellets taking a long time to melt. In my experience, normally it takes about 20-30 seconds for a new pellet to melt. Once it's melted, it only takes a few seconds for it to start working on each subsequent power up.

After 50+ years of use, pellets tend to get into places that they shouldn't, and hamper performance. I strongly suspect that this is what's wrong with yours. It's easy enough to do yourself(feel free to e-mail me for details) or any Lionel service station should be able to take care of it inexpensively. Whatever you do, don't let a service station talk you into doing a liquid conversion, though-they're not nearly as durable as the old pellet units, nor do they work as well. They're also pointless, as you can use liquid smoke in a pellet unit without harm anyway.
