Peter,I have what I consider a standard JST connector,and they do not fit the Bachmann bus trailer connectors.They are very close in size but would not fit either way of the connectors.The size of the JST socket is very close to the Bachmann,so you may be able to fit a JST socket to replace the Bachmann socket.The only problem I could see,is the cable on the JST connector is slightly heavier than the Bachmann,so flexibility of the wires may be an issue going around corners.......Peter

As Scott says it should be straight forward,I have changed a number of LED lights in locos.Some of my climaxes were easy but a couple(as per Tons comment) were indeed very hard to change.I ended up removing the head light ,drilling out the lenz,replacing the LED and making up a new lenz with clear plastic card and refitting the head light.Some care is required but it is possible to do,give it a go,if it doesn't work out buy a replacement head light,if it works ,well you have achieved some  satisfaction and learned a new skill. Wink........................Peter.

Mike ,the photo does show a DCC chip..If the loco came with a number,try that number as the DCC Address.If it has not got a number ,try number 3,the default address for chips....Peter.

Hello Mike,it sounds like the Pocohontas has a DCC chip that has not been programmed for DC and DCC,it's not a big issue. You can remove it but you will need to fit some links to make it work on DC or get the chip programmed for Dc and DCC . If you know some one with a DCC layout they should be able to help or go to a Model hobby retailer who may be able to help.....Peter

I have three Forney's that I have cut off the rear portion to reduce over hang and replaced with tenders.They now look better (to me) and operate superbly. I guess this would not be liked by the purist,but i'm not modelling any particular railroad or rolling stock(and I'm not a purist)............Peter
