How do you remove the shell on this locomotive? I have had this steam engine since the 90's but only lately tried to run it. Was going to disassemble and oil but all I have is the exploded diagram that came with it and can not figure out how to take the shell off.

Been a while, but from what I can recall..............

Remove front and rear trucks. The trailing truck may have pick-up leads on it....be careful. If it does, it's best to leave that one in place.

Remove 1 screw from inside the stack.

Remove 2 screws from under the rear of the cab.

Gently wiggle loose while watching for detail parts that may need some coaxing and tend to hang up.

Good luck.
