Have a Lionel 0-8-0 steam engine (with upgraded valve and drive rod assembly) from a starter set. Only real complaint with this conventional engine is it's an anemic smoker so I want to replace it's o.e. puffer smoke unit with a fan driven one. Anyone already do that to this engine? Would appreciate recommendations (including part number) for a fan driven smoke unit that would do justice to this fine engine and be the best fit in the loco body requiring the least least installation hassle and modification to the locomotive?
BTW, though I've considered adding tmcc and cruise control to this engine but there's no immediate plan to do since its current tender with RailSounds RTR sound system (steam chuffing, whistle, bell, and user-activated crew dialog scenarios) is adequate.
Looking for advice and observations from anyone who's converted this model engine to a fan driven smoker.
