I just purchased a 2-8-0 locomotive with tinder.
the engine is marked as #677  GV and the tinder is marked as #677 Green Valley.
I was searching online for the history of this locomotive or any information related to it.

The engine has a coil for smoke.
What is the correct fluid for the smoke and how much should I use.
I have found the maintenance instructions for the locomotive.

I am looking forward to seeing this run at Christmas as this is my first steam locomotive.

I just guessing, but with the tender marked as #677 Green Valley, I would say some one put there own decals on this locomotive.
If that is the case it would be hard to find the history of this locomotive.

You said the engine has a coil for smoke. If it is HO & Bachmann, I would say it is the Reading 2-8-0, in which case Bachmann smoke fluid would work fine.
The maintenance instructions for the locomotive should tell the make and model.
