This is my first post to this forum.  I am a newbie to G scale, having just bought two Bachmann Big Hauler sets as clearance items at Hobby Lobby.  I bought these to set up on our patio when my grandsons come to visit.   I like the way these engines run and especially like the steam chug sounds.  I’d like to add a whistle sound (and possibly the bell also) to these engines.  My question is:  Is there a commercially available electronic module that will add these sounds without going to a digitally controlled system?  I’d prefer a “plug & play” module that uses the conventional power supply system that came with these sets.  Any ideas or advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Many thanks to you all for the help and advice.  I've looked at the websites for each of the options you all suggested.  I think I'll try the Small Scale Railways product first.  It looks like the easiest install option.  From what I read on their website, I can use the existing axle cam, switch, speaker, on/off switch, and battery connections.  I'll try the reed switch and magnets as well, even though this will not be a permanent layout.  
Thanks once again and best regards.
Jim
