Typically, eastern railroads would just have one headlight; think Pennsy and Southern Railway. Western railroads, because of higher train speeds, often used warning lights such as the Mars Light or Pyle Gyra-Light; ...

Plug the decoder and harness into the light board in the locomotive.Program CVs as follows:  CV33 = 001, CV34 = ...
