Like you I started out with 4Dbricks and was very dissapointed that Tom could not continue his good work. You have taken automation to a new level – congratulations. One feature I enjoyed with n-control was train sounds. I used a very small Bluetooth speaked that was easily concealed on my Emerald Express. The big problem was that I could only control one speaker at a time!I am thinking of using an Arduino Sound Shield like this https://www.jaycar.com.au/audio-amplifier-module-with-speaker-for-arduino/p/XC3744?pos=12&queryId=2e0af12ce4a0b8a97653971ff295ed8f&sort=relevance attached to each train controller.I see that the ESP8266 has up to 4MB of flash memory that maybe can be used for sound files? Otherwise use a memory card? Interested to hear your thoughts

As you said, you need a memory card and a speaker for train sounds. We are going to implement that one day. Until then, you can use the built-in sounds in Rocrail, if that’s a possible interim solution for you.
