Smoke doesnt work when moving

When the train is in place and I push the trotle the smoke comes out but when it starts moving theres no smoke.

Since the smoke output is dependent on the throttle setting, you may want to increase the load on the train by adding more cars so more voltage is needed at a given train speed.

Also, it is more difficult to see the smoke emissions while the train is underway if the output is on the light side.

This is a good example of a weakness of the forum software.  The original poster posted the same topic twice, without realizing that his first post hadn't showed up because he was a new, probationary forum member.  When this happens, and the new member is approved, all his failed attempts to post appear at once, but at the places where they would have been located if they had not been held up.  Then multiple threads develop on the same topic, as is the case here.
