I've seen ONE loco that has actual fairly realistic looking smoke, or steam at least - out of the stack in time to the pistons, out of the cylinder cocks when starting, and even out of the whistle when you blow the whistle. It actually looks good. It's also an incredibly expensive loco, in I think I can only imagine how much smoke fluid you need to pour into this thing to keep it going, thankfully it's a larger scale that would more than likely be used outdoors because with that much smoke coming out, the coating on things would be really bad.
I tried to trace just how BLI has it wired and got lost. The reed switch is what makes the "Puffing" so that triggers the speed of the blower. The element gets full DCC track power. Even switched off the switch is only on one leg of the circuit, the other side is still hot. Maybe something shorted to the element.
The red and white wires here go to the under-cab switch, the seven pin connector plugs into a harness to the smoker:.
I can't explain why but the smoke units get fried even if they are switched off. Here's one way the switch can get bypassed! Although this isnt the engine that toasted the smoke unit, that was a PRR T1. I would suspect somethign liek that short is what happened. Cuttin one leg of a cirsuit is perfectly fine - that's all that happens with a light switch in house wiring even. Until something shorts and bypasses the switched lead. A short that simply allows power to get to the element will then burn the element up since I'm sure you didn't put smoke fluid in it if you weren't usuing it.
That woudl take some period of time to burn out the element. A short elsewhere on that harness could make it immediately go up in smoke. Not sure what it needs so many wires for, there's the two wires to the heating element, then there's the blower motor that produces the puffs of smoke, 2 more wires. Feedback on the blower motor maybe - that would be 6.
Unless the blower motor is actually a multi-pole stepper and needs multiple wires to drive it. Don't have any to take apart and examine. Removing it makes room for a small speaker so at least some of the sounds would come from the boiler end instead of all coming out of the tender.
