I got the above locomotive on ebay.  Looks like a pretty involved tender motherboard with 4 wire harness but no battery or protocoupler.  So if no Protosounds (supposedly optional) just electronic reverse and whistle.  When testing the whistle sound is barely audible.  No external volume control.  Even tried the protocol for engine reset for volume, but again very faint sounds.  Wiring looks ok.  Suggestions?

Guess I'm out of luck.  I'm deaf in one ear so what I thought was low whistle was the whistle from an old rail sounds car a couple feet away with sounds off but still emitted a faint sound.  I did have another speaker which works and soldered it in and held it to my ear.  When pushing whistle It produced a buzz.  Bad 25 year old board?
