How do you release and remove the truck side frames without causing damage? I'm switching from black to silver on a Santa Fe.

I am planning a layout and want to have a siding with several locomotives. Does the Bachman track with insulated gap work as a block so I can have power to the layout the the engines will not move unless i add power or do I need to do wiring as a block. How does the insulated gap work and what does it attach to.  Sorry I am new to building a layout so the question may seem dumb.

Ok. Good luck.
All my steamers and diesels have been installs by me.
I never did Sound Value.
Only one Bachmann sound on board ten years ago with SoundTraxx in tender. A Spectrum large driver 4-6-0 not full sound but nice.
I use tp run DCC Power Cab.

Rich, your getting above my pay grade. I'm relatively new to DCC. This was running on DC out of the box. I then switched over to DCC. The only setting that I changed was from #3 to a number I choose. There are 3 other locos running with only the number designation switched to a unique number. All locos have been running for several months with no problem. This particular diesel began with the 'noise'  yesterday. I looked on the SoundTraxx website and it gave a few possibilities for the 'crackling' noise. They even described like that. None of their suggestions appeared to be the problem except for a bad speaker. I'll keep looking.

Have you checked the CV list? What are on the sound list?
I never checked the speaker location. My bad. Sorry.

It's not a buzz. Think of how a fire sounds. The crackling type of sound. It sounds like it changes in 'speed' as the loco speed increases (i think). Could be some type of interference from the motor.  Is there a way to test a speaker? The speaker is at the rear of the chassis right on top. It has a plastic cover over it. It's tight.

I'm looking for my receipt. May just send it back to Bachmann.

Resetting the sound value decoder CVs to their factory default value is a two-step procedure.

   1)  Program CV 8 to 8
   2)  Cycle power to the decoder by turning power to the track off and back on

After about six-seconds upon restoring power the headlight and backup light will blink simultaneously 16 times indicating that the CVs were successfully reset. However, if sound or lights come on immediately upon restoring power, the decoder did not successfully reset. Repeat the two-step procedure.

For directional lighting (on/off)

CV 33 = 1
CV 34 = 2
CV 49 = 129
CV 50 = 129

Any particular sound associated with the buzz? Speaker secure?

If you have the car, just measure with a dial caliper. They are cheap enough. I have had two for some years.

The BAchmann Silver Series features Celcon trucks. I cannot find any information about Celcon. I want to know the size of the wheels of the HO 13607, 72' Heavyweight COmbine Postwar car.

Passenger cars tend to be equipped with 36" wheels. There are some exceptions, but a heavyweight combine wouldn't have been such a car.
