Maybe ask Bachmann if they still have the original digital copy for the catalogues somewhere?

1/8th Watt.
average current consumption for a LED is about 20 miliAmpere.
calculation; (overall Voltage minus voltage LED)  devided by 0.02 Ampere gives resistance in Ohm.
Red = 1.9V
Green = 2.1V
Blue = 3.6V

The preresitored LED's you ordered will be very bright.
They will use the correct value resistance required for those LED's, ranging from 470 to 680 Ohms.
I use 1000 Ohm to dim the brightness.

Did cupola windows open? Slide open or flip up or out? I wanted him leaning out the window.
It's you railroad so windows will open.
It's as simple as that Grin

Do LED's flicker?
Yes , but you won't see that.
If your DCC is 15 KHz your LED will flicker at 7.5KHZ.
We humans can't even see 24Hz.  Movies.

Why not using a 5mm LED with a 1000 (1K) Ohm resistor.
Not a white one but a yellow or warm white version.
Make a bracket with a 5mm hole and glue the LED in place.
Will last a lifetime.

They come with the pack of three chassis.

A top tip for using the free version of Anyrail.
When using the free program you will only have 50 pieces availlable.
Use flex track and switch of the "to long track" option.
You'll be surprised what you can do with 50 pieces  Grin.

I tried several track design programs but every time reverted back to Anyrail.
The measurements are correct and I even persuaded them to make realistic ties and not the on size fits all ties they used to have.
You can even print your plan 1:1 and use it as a template.
I recommend it.
Btw , They also support Bachmann Easy track.

Aren't these trucks a bit heavy duty for a caboose?
Or is the caboose filled with a bunch of fat conductors? Grin
The standard archbar trucks for boxcars have facilities to accommodate a brass pickup.
the only thing you need are those pickups.

I can't really hear it but my hearing is not the greatest. I wear hearing aids at night when I'm watching TV. I can hear low sounds but not high sounds.


"Borrow"some younger ears and have them listen.

Jim, the wiring is simple.
Forget the connector pcb.
there are two wires coming from the LED. 
two sets of wires from the wheels,  black (left track) and red(right track).
And two from the motor.

Decoder wires:
orange and grey for the motor.
White and blue for the front light.
Yellow and blue for the optional backlight.
red and black for the pickups.
