    not to my knowledge jason.
    still need reliable, cheap, sound chips and speakers that will fit into n-scale locos
    another problem is that speaker small enough dont have the fidelity needed...
    tiny,tiny,tiny speakers (e.g. neo-tweeters) just can't get the loudness, bass, and midrange needed to make a convincing sound...
    for now its better to have a dedicated sound system, with speakers separate.

    you could also look into sound systems like those from MRC, and maxx traxx (qsi?).
    i haven't tried them, but i remember seeing some good reviews
