Hi everyone
Im trying to make a new railroad that uses heat to make the train move
I am using a 3 volt smoke generator to get the heat
I am hoping someone can make a 1.5 volt smoke generator
It will allow me to use a solar light system i can use indoor that is powered by an incandescent light to keep operating
Hopefully there is a 1.5 volt smoke generator or one can be made
Thanks for letting me ask

I'm confused, if I understand correctly, your trying to use solar power(in the main) to power a smoke generator to provide heat, to do what exactly? Provide an electrical current or provide motive power directly in the locomotive itself ie. turn a model into a live steam locomotive.

I am surprised you found a 3 volt generator. Making the kind of heat you need requires lots of energy. Hard enough to make smoke at 12 volts let alone 1.5.
