Hello,

I have two n-scale 2-8-0s and would like to put TCS keep alives (K4) in the tenders.  However, both locos appear to be the early versions for which the tender bottom and sides are part of a single piece of plastic.  I've tried to the access the interior by removing the top, which IS a separate piece, but haven't been successful and don't want to pry around further and risk breaking something.  Is there any way open the tender, by removing the top or otherwise? 

Thanks,
Tim

Yes, the top piece slides up and out. Perhaps this will help -

Got it.  Looks like to K4 will fit in easily after trimming off part of the weight.  Thanks Mark.
