    I got the Polar express from Lionel. The Tender it comes with only has a whislte feature. Any way to upgrade that for more sounds? Do I need to get a new Tender with more sounds available? Any custom work I could get done on the Polar Express Tender? Sounds would include bell, whistle, syncronized train sounds, etc.

    Gruggier, the easiest way is to buy a new Railsounds tender (some people swap the tender bodies), but there are aftermarket upgrades available. www.electricrr.com is one company that sells upgrades.

    I would have TMCC and the sounds put in it for about what just adding a whistle and bell would cost.

    OR if you get a real Berk Jr. and sell the set engine you would be ahead.
