It's a water soluble oil, and from an OO or HO loco is hardly likely to leave much residue - just keep the windows open. Something to watch out for though is the effect on the loco body. The heat from the generator, and the oil, not infrequently degrade plastic loco bodies. It is well worthwhile lining the smokebox with a metal tube and fitting a metal chimney to minimise the damage, and making the generator switchable, so it is not running when unfilled.
