I am trying to get into my WWII armored train (Drawing #50601) but cant seem to separate the chassis from the shell. I have removed every screw that I can see and access but cannot get the front end loose. What am I missing?

Look at the rear-upper corners of the steam chests.  There are two tabs that hold the shell in pretty tightly.  The shell can be tough to remove the first time.

If you have the newer 0-6-0 (DCC), there are two very tiny screws in that area as well.  If older version, there are no screws by the steam chest.

On the older version (DC), the only screw that actually holds the shell in place is the rear screw below the cab. 

Some have written that it feels like you are going to break the shell when trying to lift it off the first time.  It is a challenge.

Regards,

Jonathan
