I don't know about that specific engine, but have you looked for a sound on/off switch?

Some more usual suspects.

Check the polarity of the battery, the label is reversed on the battery compartment lid of some tenders.

There is a second on/off switch. The second is variable volume control located on the underside of the tender.

Turn both switches on/off several times in case of contact oxidation.
 
Check for broken wire at the plug.

Carefully plug and unplug several times to burnish the contacts.

Noviceho,

Hunt is correct, set 90054 from Sams Club has an Anniversary 4-6-0 which is is equipped for basic chuff sound.

The only thing I can add to Hunts help is that sometimes "fresh batteries" are not really fresh. Try another battery from a different package of if you have a multimeter check the one you are using.

The 4-6-0 in the #90054 set has the second version Bachmann simple sound system powered by battery triggered by cam  producing only the exhaust chuff effect.
