Remove pilot truck, brake cylinders and boiler stays. One screw down the stack, 2 screws up near front cab corners. Be careful of sand lines and it should all wiggle free and the cab may even seperate from the boiler if the paint bond breaks. Be careful of handrails and piping.

This is to the best of my recollection........They are similar in construction to the 4-6-0's.

Thank you for the response, ton. A very nice cab.  I hope someone will share their experience modifying the wiring.

1.  Study exploded drawings on Bachmann website  .  2.  Determine which screws hold the shell on.  3.  Remove screws and store safely.  4.  Remove shell.

Have a look at the pictures.
The text is in Dutch and the locomotive is a 2-6-6-2.
But there is no difference between the 2-4-4-2 and it's big sister for the modifications.
I haven't put sound in it but you could modify the side tanks.

I suppose I could just use the foam from a Bachmann box too. This was handy. If I'm working on a short car like a gondola, I can just put more Kleenex in the box to raise the level.

The funny thing is I did model in N before going back to HO once the Thomas range first came out in 2002.  so apart from Percy and a mail car, I never really collected N scale since then.  A Bachmann N scale range would be a lot of fun, I could see it having better luck financially than the large scale range.

In other news, I found my old James and Thomas and while Thomas didn't look great, James looked pretty good and I was able to get his motor and wheels cleaned and he runs almost perfectly.  Planning on heading to the club next week to pick up their Thomas pack.

Sorry I forgot to respond, don't know the make but if you want measurements of the portal I can send them to you in a personal message.

Looking for a wiring diagram and perhaps some insights from anyone who has done this mod.

Thank you
