Bachmann makes dcc equipped steam engines and diesels, check the product tab.

 the unit you have would be difficult to install a decoder into it may require a larger tender or s permanently attached tender and box car
 for me would not be worth the cost.

You can fit a decoder in the American 4-4-0 but it needs drastic modification such as cutting the top of the tender off as shown in this guide. http://www.trainbuddy.com/Reference/decoding%20Engines/N440.htm
