I've read various threads on this subject but before I dive in, I was wondering if anyone has used a Soundtraxx TSU1100 885004 for this exercise. If so, any comments or advice would be welcome.

I was contemplating buying a rail bus  or finding a rail truck but I would have to have sound, too, because that would be my whole point in buying one. I've seen a couple on Youtube with sound.

You'll have a problem, or a long wait, finding one of either with sound Terry as the standard Bachmann offerings don't have that provision. It will almost certainly require you to change the on-board decoder for a sound model, hence my post here. If you're interested, I've had some responses here.

There are other suitable decoders of course, notably the ESU LOKsound Galloping Goose which I've installed in my four rail trucks and the Soundtraxx is just one I'm considering for the rail bus.

I've installed sound in 2 railbuses.  I wrote about it here:  https://www.modeltrainforum.com/showthread.php?t=112186

ADDED:  I used the soundtrax 885004 and the soundtrax sugarcube speaker 810154 which sounds much better than a 3/4 inch speaker that I also tried.  I listed all the details in that thread.

Tom - Thanks. I bookmarked that page for future reference if I decide to jump into that. I like the sound of them going through the gears that I've seen on Youtube videos.

Thanks for the comments and link Tom, most helpful as I'm using the same decoder as you. I'm not using a shuttle controller but your reprogramming tips are very interesting. More to look into as I progress.
