I just acquired an O-27 Twin Motor A-A loco set (Santa Fe).  My question is, how do I find info on upgrading it with sound and can you install DCC, DCS, TMCC etc in this engine???  I see it has a place for a switch on the under belly, so something must be available for it.

Thanks for any and all info.

To upgrade to TMCC or DCS may cost as much as buying a new engine that already has it! I checked into the DCS upgrade just over a year ago and it would have cost me $275.00 for the DCS upgrade and about $30.00 shipping.
You can buy a True Blast 2 horn from Bachmann for around $40.00.
The switch underneath is for the direction control if so equipped, otherwise there may be a hole where the switch should go.

Check with Electric Railroad Co. - They have upgrades at reasonable prices that work well with Willaims by Bachmann.
