Shaker, just got one of my S scale B units with railsounds out, all info I gave above is correct. They do have bell and horn and you will need a switch for each. Instructions are very easy and should come with B unit. I think I would buy new. They are from the early 1990s but you should be able to find a new one on ebay. I bought 3 of them because of paint schemes. I have Missouri Pacific, Southern Pacific, and Union Pacific B units.
For some reason they did not make a B unit for my Chesapeake & Ohio set.

Thanks, mopac for the details! I've seen one on Ebay showing the switch box and a couple more that appear NIB, but no mention of switches, they must be in the boxes I suppose. Before I buy I'll message the seller to be certain.

The bell and horn buttons on the MRC AH101 will work if you were to get one of those in the future.

Ive found a American Flyer LTI Lionel 6-48122 Western Pacific B Unit With Railsounds that looks like new old stock. It appears that I could easily swap my Santa Fe B unit shell as they both appear to be Alcos. I'm checking to see if it comes with the Lionel 6-5906, I'm thinking not.

Is $106 delivered a good deal without the switch?

I would keep looking some. I bought one of mine for 45 plus shipping. I have paid 85.00 for one, The 45.00 was a super deal. I got lucky.
All of mine came with a switch.

Thanks, it seemed a bit high based on what you had previously said.

Was looking at ebay and came across an Union Pacific B unit with railsounds. Its not for you. Guy started it at 225.00. He is fishing. He is wanting that one big bite. Reminds me of a Jack In the Box commercial. Jack is at a food convention and comes across a booth with a young guy and a sign
stating he would taste your food for 10,000.00. Jack asked him if he had any takers. Young guy says no, but it only takes one.

Hahaha. It's true!

The one I saw is $95 plus shipping, but I'm in no hurry. I just put in a couple bids on accessory items and will see by tonight if I get them. The Railsounds is low priority at this point, given my B unit is serviceable. Thanks though.

Here is one I would watch. Used, but barely. Has the 6-5906.
