This thread also started out as a small shelf idea.

This little ON30 mine layout might be of interest to you. It is 20" by 40"

It depends on the sound card you want to use. The Shay and the Climax have 8 pin commenters inside the fuel bunker and sound close to the same, its all about fitting the unit in the bunker.  The Heisler drop in board is 21 pin and would be a difficult install.

Scroll down this page and I think you will find something you need.
Mount Blue kits are very well made and go together easily, I have built many of them.

Adding sheet lead under the cab roof
Add Lead fireman and engineer
There is some space under the front pilot to add weight.
Any metal detail parts you add will increase weight slightly.

The factory decoder is hard wired into the porter. The extra wire is minimal, you can desolder the wires from the board but you will need a steady hand.  Also the wires to the decoder are not color coded so you better refer to the instructions and then color code the wires as you remove them.  From there get the smallest sound decoder you can. 

I still think it would be cheaper to buy one with sound. Go to eBay and search on seller thefavoritespot they have some buy it now for the price of a decoder.

You can add almost any sound decoder if you place it in a tender behind the engine.  My advice would be pick up a new porter with sound from the favorite spot. The engine with sound will most likely cost less then an add on decoder and save you a lot of work.

I have not seen the Bachmann oem decoders for sale anywhere.

If you just purchased the engine new you should contact Bachmann for a warrantee repair. 
If it was used can you see if the Pistons on the side are moving up and down so we can help identify the issue.

I model the Yukon in 1942 so any WP&Y items would be a welcome addition. P51 thanks for the link, I did not realize that the Army kept the ET&WNC engines in the ET&WNC paint so now I can run these engines on my RR.

This may help you.
15  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: V-Dump Car on small curves radius ? on: February 17, 2014, 11:44:13 PM
You should be able to do this. The issue with tight radius is that the track work needs to be perfect and consistently the same radius. I have pulled my v dumps around 7.5" curves.
