Regarding Smoke Units: I was wondering if anyone was familiar with KM1 products? I found this of many videos on YouTube for their locomotives with smoke units and a unique simulated steam from the steam cylinders it is a step up for realism in my opinion and I have not seen it offered by other manufacturers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6NqSy8Ozg0

MTH did make smoke come from the whistle. No one else has done the cylinders, although you only see this at very low speeds.

I have heard that they use fluid at a prodigious rate.

Keith Keith: I agree, they offer an excellent service to US customers, I have bought a few things from them and they have served well every single time.

Does anyone know how the KM1 steam cylinder and whistle smoke units actually work, are they fan driven or maybe some other type of air pressure system? I would love to install a similar system in my Connies. I once had an old Mantura HO loco with and actual bellows in it for the chuff smoke, powered by the motor off the drive axle and I believe American Flyer also used this system.
