Well I do know a Railsounds 6 board won't work with a Legacy R4LC. I suspect if you find a Railsounds 6 board it would have to be driven with an RCMC. Sounds like a RCDR wouldn't work either. I haven't come across too many engines with RS6 boards anyway.

Pete, you know something that Lionel doesn't know!  I have the Legacy Lionmaster T1 Duplex, it has a RailSounds 6 board and the Legacy RCDR.  That's the tender I was doing the experiments with.

Legacy LionMaster PRR T-1 Duplex 4-4-4-4 #5511 Parts Breakdown

While it works with the RCDR, it doesn't work with the RCMC equipped locomotives, I tried a few.  However, I am able to take the T1 Duplex tender and using a Legacy R4LC-C03 in my test board feeding the optical link to the tender, I can drive it and get all the sounds properly rendered.

I don't pretend to know all the in's and out's of the compatibility, much of this stuff is discovered by tinkering with various combinations.
