are quite a few locos yet to be converted.
A comment for Pat WRT his comment about plenty of room. Things can get
pretty tight when the tender is a vanderbilt tender that has almost no
access to the interior. Then everything has to go in the engine. On a
small loco there isn't much room for decoders and a speaker as the
motor and boiler weight take up lots of space.
Lastly, almost on track, O scale motors are 12 volt, the same as HO.

I can tell you from experience that there are many O scale 2
railers who would like to selectively put sound in their locos and
have a choice of running on DC or DCC. (perhaps club vs home)
There are also many O Scalers like myself who are on the brink
of going DCC. I bought Easy DCC for my 2 rail layout last year
but have been waiting for a better choice in decoders before
making the switch.
There is also a large group of three rail O guage/scale guys who
tell me the only thing that keeps them from moving to 2 rail O
Scale is loosing the cool sounding electronics. (many of them
Just my 2 cents worth. And Thanks.
