How do you tell if a Lionel train engine uses smoke pellets or smoke liquid?

Question by Joe D: How do you tell if a Lionel train engine uses smoke pellets or smoke liquid?
I have a 2-4-2 Scout number 236 I believe is from 1961. It looks identical to the Scout number 242 made in 1962. How do I tell if it is capable of making smok and what method it uses. I can’t find this model listed anywhere. Thanks.

If the heat unit in the smokestack is a dimpled light bulb, I would use smoke pellets.
The older liquid smoke units had a wire coil as seen down the stack.

This is all from memory, but I could be mistaken.
