...I run DCC is it easy to fit stay alive capacitor? 

As you are using DCC on the layout, you will know that a decoder is required to enable a 'stay alive' to be fitted. That will also make the lights switchable and give you output level control as well.


But because the lights - whether LED or filament - simply need power, a simple storage capacitor arrangement might do the trick if all you require is to eliminate flickering. Never tried this. It will be worth looking at the power pick up on the coaches to make sure these are working optimally too.
