I think it's actually Suethe, rather than Sleuthe

There is some information here:

You would have done if you had just searched for 'Smoke Units' instead of the name. That's how I found it. :wink: :D

That looks very tempting. I didn't know you could run smoke units with DCC. Are they a special type and did you ahve to make any changes to the unit?

Great pictures too.

Any decoder should be fine bob as long as the function supply has enough power for the smoke unit used. i used TCS T1
All you do is wire white and yellow wires to one pole of sleuthe and the blue wire to the other pole.
There are also clever ways you can use it aswell if you want to program the decoder.
i used a sleuthe number 23 but john at bromgrove said after i bought it a number 22 is better for dcc but this 23 seems to work ok thou.

yes Jeff both dc and dcc i used a no 23 on mine under dcc but John at bromsgrove said that a No 22 is better for dcc .
There are lots of them its not easy to decipher what ones are best for what loco really its space beneath the chimney to fit the smoke unit .
you can be clever under dcc and adjust the volumes of smoke using the decoder if you want but at this stage i have just got it switching on or off.
Cheers Brian

That second picture is particularly impressive I thought Brian. Next step is a 'smelly' to go with the smoke unit.

I wish you had never brought this up. :evil:

Now I can't see any way I can avoid eventually equipping my locos with smoke units. :D

Excellent photos; especially the second one.

I like it. I'd like some of those. Diesels belch out plenty of black smoke too. I wonder if you can get black smoke units.....
Very nice tankers there too, Brian. :)
