I have the Lionel NYC 2-8-0 consolidation from the 2008 Vol1 catalog.

It has TMCC, Rail sounds and cruse... But only 1 Chuff per revolution and a puffer not fan driven smoke.

So, Id like to upgrade this to fan smoke and 4 chuffs and my questions are:

Will a fan driven smoke unit fit in there? If so what unit to buy?

Is the Super Chuffer upgrade a good addition for lights and smoke?

What is needed to get the 4 chuffs per rev?

Is there someone recommended to do this work for me?

It's possible that it would all fit, but this is one of the units that I have to see inside to determine what will fit.  Pretty sure a smoke unit can be installed, it might be the LC+ steam unit, which does pretty good smoke, but something.  The wild card is if there's enough room somewhere around the motor and flywheel to install the Chuff-Generator for the four-chuffs, as well as space for the Super-Chuffer II.  The good thing is the Super-Chuffer II is smaller than the original, so there's more chance it will fit.

I have put all of this stuff in a semi-scale TMCC K-Line Berkshire, that should be a similar sized unit.

Pete, that looks like the Atlantic smoke unit, still have one left in the ol' smoke unit box.

Not having a nice machine shop to make those fancy brackets, mine are mounted a bit less elegantly.

Actually, the LC+ smoke unit is pretty compact, and it works quite well for upgrades.

Also, the MTH full size steam smoke unit is pretty compact, that's my "go to" unit if it fits.  The MTH unit also has more convenient mounting provisions for plain bending aluminum mounts.
