All Bachmann Ho DCC steam engines have two separate wiring connectors going from the loco to the tender with the exception of the 0-6-0 w/ tender and 0-6-0T since it doesn't have a tender. The tender houses an 8-pin plug for an easy DCC install, so all you do is pop in a decoder then attach the two plugs from the tender to the underside of the loco.

The Spectrum 44 ton and 70 ton diesels do not have 8 pin connectors. Just solder tabs like the steam switchers mentioned.

If you ever get a non Bachmann loco, below are some connector options.
The Specialty one is quite new and selling well from what I have heard in a DCC forum.
