I received a 2037 the other day and found it to run great, but the smoke unit is not working.
To see if a smoke unit element is good, put the locomotive in neutral and turn the power all the way up. I have a 2026 (very similar to the 2037) and do not see a glow from the smoker at normal track volts. We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.

I run steam locomotives on my N Scale Stevens Pass layout, but the lack of smoke and steam from the locos seems unrealistic, especially those with sound. Photos in various magazines with smoke or steam appear to have been Photoshop-enhanced to add the effects.
I tease out the cotton using a dental pick; a round toothpick also works, and I pick at the cotton little by little.
I like to leave as little cotton as possible attached to the shaft of the swab when I am done. I have also found the cotton tends to blow around a little while I am spraying it, which makes it harder to control the paint application.
After the paint has dried, I cut off the excess swab shaft to prepare it for mounting in a locomotive. Once I was happy with the appearance, I painted it lightly with an all-purpose gray primer, which is a lighter color than the gray used on the locomotives.


For the smaller smoke stacks I use only a tiny bit of cotton, but the procedure is the same. Some items may not have a hole in which to mount the smoke, or may require a hole too small to be practical. When I run into these situations, I add a very small amount of CA cement to the end of the pipe with a sharp toothpick. For the industrial smoke stacks of the boiler-house, I used the same process as the station smoke. There are many opportunities to model smoke and steam on your layout (14,15), from just a wisp to bellowing out like the place is on fire. Mega-Steam, LLC will be closed June 14-23 so that the management and staff can take a much needed vacation. Orders placed during that time frame will be filled in the order in which they are received as soon as we are back in production. Not sure if its getting power as I can't see a glow down the stack after running it for a few mins. Any smoke pellet material should melt and smoke, and the element should start to glow if it is not clogged with smoke pellet material.
I sometimes see a glow but it's from the headlight bulb as the smokestack gasket has deteriorated an is allowing light to pass through.
Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. I prefer to do spray painting outside with a rattle can of Krylon or Rustoleum dark gray primer – I find it makes a nice dark smoky color (4). I let it set for a second or two before touching the swab cotton on the pipe, and then holding it there until the CA cement sets up.
This is how I added the smoke on the smaller chimney of the Scenic Depot (9) and on some of my vehicles (11).
I use the same procedures on the truck that I use on the small chimney of the Scenic Depot.
Unfortunately, without the boilers being fired, the lumber mill won’t saw any logs, which leads to no lumber being shipped. I made this smoke flowing in an upward direction, and I used the lighter gray color like the Scenic Depot.


For my steam winch at a logging area on the layout,  I wanted to suggest some steam leaks around the edges for a little extra detail.  I used the same procedures I use on the small smoke stacks except no paint. In the past you were on your own to deal with pouring smoke fluid into the smaller bottles and applicators.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. I then folded a strand of thin wire to trap a piece of cotton that I had pulled away from a swab with my fingers.
Once it was dry I clipped off most of the wire and glue it into the hole that I had drilled into the chimney. After making the smoke and gluing it into the smoke stacks, I teased the separate smoke plumes a little more and merged them together. Now the refilling task is easy with these special caps that fit all of the Mega-Steam 8 oz bottles. It came with easy instructions for installation and using JT Megasteam fluid, it is my best smoker out of 5 steamers, both postwar and modern.
Those that didn’t turn out to my liking were used for smaller projects that I will share with you a little later. After the paint has dried, for variety I sometimes tease the smoke out a little more to create a multi color look (6).
Two types are currently available: a flip top spout that locks when closed, and a snap top funnel that serves several applications. I'm also in the proccess of rebuilding another 2037 which seem to be missing a lot of parts.
You can either replace the units with the original style ceramic wound element for pellets, or you can convert to a newer style element and use liquid smoke. It looks to be different with a black bar coming out the front and the pickups (if thats what they are) are different also.
