Any suggestions on a good DCC equipped 4-6-2 Locomotive with sound for a reasonable price? I'm looking for a Santa Fe or Southern Pacific that is ready to go right out of the box. I would appreciate any suggestions or comments.

although i don't know of any "Reasonably priced" steam engines with sound, I do know that the MRC Steam Sound decoder is fairly reasonably priced and will fit most current DCC ready steam engines. It also sound fairly well for the price.
