Just purchased a Silver Series boxcar that has the end-of-train device.  I was wondering if there is anything special I need to do or know.  For example - what about DCC - can I just put in on the track and go? Also, I like to paint the underbody and trucks of all my rolling stock - is there anything special about removing the truck that has the device?

I bought one about five years ago that came mounted on an a HO freight truck. It was for DC or DCC. Put it on one of my freight cars and bought the matching truck. I don't remember the brand but it work just fine on DCC. I will try to find out which brand. Stored somewhere.

Edit.
It was sold by Ring Engineering. DC and DCC Bachmann sold one also. Worked on DC and DCC I just Googled it.

Are there any tail lamps (like the ones shown inThomas & Friends) that you can find online and attach to rolling stock that light up when you attach it to rolling stock? I am referring to the ones you see on British freight trains.

You could probably make your own using the ideas shown here:

The outer case could be modified to whatever shape you need.
