All of my engines that I am converting to Annie Chassis are Version 2.   They only have 1 smoke Switch behind the front plate and only 1 pin connector for the Chuff sound to the Tender.  The Annie Chassis have a second pin connector.  What is this second connector for?
I don't plan on using the smoke box so will leave that switch off but I do need to connect power to the leads that connect to the smoke box switch and also the headlight.  Where is the easiest connection for these? Is there a chance there is a wiring diagram somewhere for the Annie Chassis?

The second pin connector is to power the operating headlight in the Annie Tender.  Since you have a Big Hauler Tender you will not need to connect anything to it since the rear headlight is a dummy.  If you want to you can add an operating headlight to your BH tender and use the second connector to power it. If using LED's be sure to add a 1000K resistor to the circuit to protect the LED.


Here is the link to the wiring diagram:
