Here is one way http://home.neo.rr.com/mrwithdcc/f7app.html
check Digitrax website for current version decoder.

Bachmann does produce inexpensive decoder equipped HO FT-A & FT-B locomotives.

Lights in cars should be 14V  but get them as far away from shell as you can or just remove the lightbulb.

I had a similar question earlier this month, regarding my G Scale engine.
Bac-man answered and said, " Any engine can be converted to DCC, you just have to isolate the motor, and connect the appropriate DCC decoder."

I hope this helps.
