Jim-I suppose that if you ran power on the rails to keep the battery charged then you could have sound...but then you woud have wires to track, needing clean wheels & track to recharge batteries, polarity issues (unless the board takes care of that)...in short, you would have a "traditional" layout with wiring and that is what I wouldn't want. A few years back, I hooked up an expensive Tsunami DCC/sound board in one of my Shays with r/c. The chug worked but I coudn't figure how to make the bell & whistle work. I ran it for about 5 minutes, just to prove it would work and then took it out. I still have the Tsunami somewhere but I prefer silent running.

Woodie
