I guess the first question is "who made it"

Hello Ron

Assuming it is the Bachmann Branchlines one (and not Hornby's) the body fixing screw is hidden by the NEM socket at the rear (cab) end of the loco. The socket can easily be prized out using a small flat bladed screw driver.

Then simply unscrew  the small crosshead screw and the body can be lifted off by tilting it forward (there is a fixing lug under the radiator end). I say that the body is actually just the cab and bonnet, the footplate is part of the chassis.

I found this quite tricky as there are various pipes that need to be unclipped fore the body id completely removed.

Hope this helps

Thank you very much. Yes, it is a Bachmann. I did not remember that the forum also deals with other makes.
Yours, Ron.

Hi Ron,

Not only are other makes allowed to be mentioned to some extent but I believe that most on here are probably in the States since Bachmann Branchlines are hardly ever mentioned and there is no forum for OO.

Best wishes
