Opinions or experience on this unit? American Flyer 6-48055 Bethlehem Steel 0-6-0 Dockside swither?

Any good?  Reliabilty?  Can they pull anything around?  If i keep it, I would intend it to be used for small yard switcher duty.

Is there any room inside to add DCC/sound?

Take a look at tuveson.com. Click on TMCC for S in the left hand column. Scroll down and you will see Carl's conversion of the Lionel AF Docksider to TMCC plus sound. If TMCC fits then so will DCC. Carl is a true artist and magician to develop these conversions.
