This page helps for the lights in basic mode set up
Thanks for the feedback. I got it working.
When I wired up the train via the instructions it ran backwards. Rather than flipping re-soldering the motor leads at the motor, I reversed the leads at the board. That is what caused the headlight to work in reverse.
I simply mover the light (-) wire to the reverse position on the board and now it works in Forward. The Deadrail guys provided instructions on how to fix it with the software too.
I'm sure 10 years from now I'll be scratching my head wondering, "Why the heck did I do it this way?"
