I am optimistically looking at Christmas pressie "suggestions" and spend time going back to 39251 the Oil powered elephant due for release "just in time" for Xmas.

There's lots I love about this lok and I notice it is factory fitted with a smoke unit which is always good news to me as I am a bit fumbly

In the gallery of photos I notice a picture of the model with the smoke generator going and a very good plume of dark smoke just as you may expect from an oil fired steamer. Would this be true in the final model - do they use a different smoke fluid or would you get the usual rather pathetic whisper of light grey smoke?

Märklin almost always shows their steamers with airbrushed in smoke.

That looks a lot like the smoke from a real loco and not at all like what you get with their models. You could view it as a deception or more likely just some creative advertising. BigGrin

I have almost all Märklin and mostly HO, although I do have a small number of Z gauge trains!
I have models from Era I to Era VI, but I try to focus on Eras I & III. Whoops, that one got away from me. Let's just say I focus on cool trains, regardless of the particulars :-)
So many trains and so little time.
