I put a decoder in a 0-4-0.  I believe it was an NCE  D13SR.  It fit (just barely) crosswise  under the cab floor.  I added a "backup" light to the roof and everything works very well.  If I were going to add sound I would probably get the 0-4-2 and put the speaker in the coalbin.  As for the 0-4-0, a speaker could be placed in the fireman's space alongside the boiler or up underneath the roof...but might be somewhat obvious in both places.  Good luck.....the Porters are "cute" and always get a cheer from the audience (especially kids) when one takes off with a half dozen or more cars in tow.
