I have a USA trains dockside switcher with the main PCB failed, I want to fit a digital decoder, make not a problem at this point, the lights are LED's, again not a problem, but I am not able to ascertain the smoke unit voltage, it doesn't have a fan but it is pulsed through a piston on the driving axle, any ideas or knowledge of the working voltage would be appreciated.

I would start out at 5 volts, and perhaps higher, but it looks relatively sturdy. Note there is a thermistor in the assembly that could be used as feedback for out of fluid.
