I get your drift.
I wandered also when the ten wheelers came out.
I had a #12 but because of the lack of cars i swapped it for an unpainted one with a friend of mine.
He is making his own cars using a cutting plotter.

There is a good article about ET&WNC passenger car kits by Dearfield in the 2017 0n30 review .
They have full size cars and conversion kits based on the JS cars from Bachmann.

Have a look at San Juan Decals.
They have screen printed white decals.

They are not a decal but are printed on in the factory.
The text is screen printed on a silicone transfer block and then pressed against the object.

By the looks of the diagram it is already connected.

That sad i can't recollect ever seeing a capacitor when i transplanted the sound decoder to a 2-4-0.
But that is a few years ago.

The pcb's of the 2-4-4-2 and the 2-6-6-2 are the same.
I think the sound pcb's are one and the same for both.

I use brake fluid.
Apply and let it soak for a while then use an old toothbrush to remove the paint layer for layer.

If you have a look at the top diagram on the right it looks like your right.

To add to the comment.
It makes an awful high pitched noise and is detrimental for the motors.

Those sugar cain cars, that's what is still missing in the Bachmann collection.
Maybe a suggestion for the Bachman?
Could be a moneymaker as you would need a lot of them to make a train.

If you hooked it up to your power supply without a resistor it probably has died already.
A LED is a LED regardless brand.
you always have to use a resistor.
I usually use 1 Kilo Ohm colourcode brown black red or 102

A new LED has a long lead and a short lead.
The long one is +
generic led voltage is 1.5V and consumes 0.02 Ampere.
That said , colour emitting  leds have different voltage per colour.

I thought these headlights plugged into the body of the locomotive.

Yes it does but has nothing to do with how the led is incorporated into the lamp body.
The led is inserted from the front of the lamp body and then kept in place by the plastic glass insert.
Some inserts are so tightly fitted that you can't get them out any more.
Then you have to replace the entire headlight.

Depends on if you can get the "glass" out or not.
Sometimes it is glued in and sometimes not.
