    Has anyone out there had success installing sound in these locos? Space is a real problem here.

    I just narrowed a Bachman GE 70 Toner, and there was next to no room in there. At a minimum for onboard sound, you need a speaker and a way to let air in and out to carry the sound waves. the smaller the speaker the worse the sound. with tiny locomotives an of board system with a speaker on or under the layout may be the only practical solution, although, as a rule, they are less satisfying.

    Or you could find a spot to hide an outboard speaker.
