I was wondering how hard would it be to add sound to the Bachmann Digital Commander Deluxe Set HO here is the info listed
 Santa Fe GP40 (#3507) and FT-A diesel locomotives are all-wheel
            drive & DCC-equipped with 28/128 speed step decoders that are
            factory-programmed to address button 3 on NMRA-compliant
            DCC systems.

it would be pretty difficult for a beginner, requiring a complete disassembly of the locomotive, and milling tof the chassis to provide a space for a speaker. it can be done, but it is easy to mess it up. it would be much easier to add sound to a steam locomotive, as the tender is usually empty and provides plenty of space for a speaker.

a better option might be to find one of the sound value engines on sale on ebay at a good price. any dcc locomotive should work with your controller.
