Please can someone tell me how to disassemble this loco so that I can replace the headlight bulb?

With thanks

Disconnect tender from loco.

Remove front truck from loco.

Pull boiler stays and steam lines out of boiler and swing to one side.

Just ahead of the loco plug-ins, are two screws....remove them.

The boiler shell and cab should lift off the chassis. Tilt up from the rear first. Be careful of any detail parts that may need to be removed or disconnected.

The headlamp is an LED soldered to a circuit board behind the plastic light pipe.

Reverse to reassemble.

Just like to add if your going to go through all that .Go get yourself a sunny white L.E.D and a 800 ohm resistor for the light and wire them in.

Thank you for your help.  It was quite stiff to move at the front end but brute force did the trick!  Didn't really need to remove the front screws, just the two at the rear, pull down and then ease the running gear section backwards out of the boiler section.
