Friends,
I've got a S4 switcher and I really like it, however I would like to add some weight to the locomotive to improve its traction. Can somebody advice me how to open the body, maybe there is a video available as well?  Huh?

I went to Spookshow.net. Toward the bottom of the page he says:

"To remove the shell, insert a small screwdriver between the chassis and the sidesill and pry the shell upwards slightly. Once raised up from the base of the chassis, the shell should pull off readily."

Here is the Spookshow address:

This is the page for the S-4:

I often refer to this site when trying to decide if I should buy a loco or pass it by. He has a review of just about every N scale loco ever made.

near bottom of page above...To remove the shell, insert a small screwdriver between the chassis and the sidesill and pry the shell upwards slightly. Once raised up from the base of the chassis, the shell should pull off readily.

Mark has probably the best location on the net for N scale loco information.....HTH.

This video shows a very easy way to remove most N scale diesel shells. I've used this technique many times without damaging any engines. By the way, that's not me on the video.
