      Some of those cars have a specific order to connect them. Most of the time it is not ABCDE. The right order is displayed in the readme file if there is one.

          Basic is --- A-C-B -- look at the individual cars in the CE and you should be able to figure it out. Little bit of self-education goes a long way.

            Well sometimes even the readme's can be wrong.

            In the real world it's only one way

            A-C-B for 3 packs, brakewheel usually on B

            A-E-D-C-B for 5 packs, brakewheels usually on both A and B

            Its not uncommon for A or B to be the leading platform in the train in the real world, but very seldom do our modelers physically orient the car segments to lead with B.

            It is possible to lead with B in the sim if you swap position of A and B plus flip each end unit directionally, then swap position of C and E (no directional flip necessary on those)
