I have a MRC Symphony 77 sound system that I use with my Xmas display.  It does exactly what you want and was priced cheap enough.
BUT, it is no longer manufactured.  They do come up on e-bay but none there right now.  It can be added to your layout at anytime so keep a lookout for one on e-bay or maybe one of the model RR forums on Facebook.

Look through this volume of Troels Kirk's On30 layout. http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=36954
He used HO track and for me it looks just fine. 
I use HO also to save costs and it works for me too.

Yes they will, but if you're buying Kadees get the #148.  Same as #5 but have whisker springs. Much easier to assemble than #5.

take the engine to a local hardware store and check in the O-ring section to see if you can find a rubber o-ring to fit the wheel

The best "adhesive" latex caulk (washable off your fingers) is Pheonsil, a DAP product at HD and Lowes.  Will NOT eat the foam and sticks to anything.....forever; but can be separated later with just a putty knife.
Used it for years in my construction business.

Like Steve, take a look (listen) to the TCS WOW decoder.   A real big difference.

William,
If your layout runs well on DC and all the proper blocks are working then converting to DCC should be easy.  No re-wiring required.
I would also look at some of the more advanced DCC systems.  You may find that the EZ Command is just too basic and limited controls for your liking.  Look for a used system on e-bay where someone has upgraded to the newest and is selling of their perfectly good used system.  Definitely look at the Bachmann Dynamis as well as NCE (my preference).

Hawk, I think the PofP would have worked but the sculptamold should do fine.  Caulk would also work as all your trying to do is attach the bark to the already formed hill/mountain (not making a mold).
Good luck as this is a good technique. Cool

Or consider a MRC Symphony 77.  Although no longer made it does give basic sounds with speakers under the layout.

These sold for around $70 new so shop around before you buy.

I'm smiling  Grin.  Those were just guesses but they are the things I would have screwed up hence the suggestion.
Glad it's running with sound now.
42  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: Heisler sound module on: May 22, 2015, 01:52:57 PM
Just a couple of thoughts.  Is it possible that the pins are in backwards?  I've never done one of these so just a guess.
Or is it possible that you DCC controller has the sound muted?  You do have a speaker installed....right?

I've heard a lot of positive things about their turnouts but haven't tried them yet myself.
And the price is fair.  I'd say give them a try for a couple turnouts.
Then let us know.

Karl, there are numerous manufacturers of 1:48 scale buildings and kits.  Try one of the dealers like Klines or such.  Do a Google search for O scale buildings.
