Mine are just a friction fit.  A tight fit but the shell will pop off, you may need a small screwdriver blade between the shell and frame to start the process.

The tender shell for the 4-6-0 is not held by screws... it is just a (tight) press fit. Find the fine "crack" between the tender frame/chassis and the shell... gently slide the edge of a hobby knife into the crack, and gently wedge the shell upwards. You might have to work on both sides before it pops loose. It's likely you will loose just a little paint from the frame/chassis, which can be touched up with engine black acrylics. Good luck.
