2-6-6-2 Won’t Run

I picked up the 2-6-6-2 in a bundle deal. The headlines are functional and directional. I replaced the decoder with the supplied dummy plugs and still no movement. The multimeter verified power at the dummy plugs. Next step is to check the 4 pin connector located beneath the cab. How does one remove the cab and boiler so I can continue checking for power all the way to the motor?


Well , I'd say that you find the right screws, loosen and remove them, and then remove the superstructure.  You may have to do a little detective work to figure it out, but that's been part of Model Railroading since day one.

But.  It looks like I have to put the broken record back on the turntable.

Verily, verily, I say unto thee. Beware thee of the used model railroad locomotive.  Knowest thou not of the indignities and sufferings it has suffered, be it having been run to the ground, or used as a weapon against a younger sibling. Knowest thou also not of any hidden terminal internal injuries that may. exist.  Spendeth thee wisely thy earthly treasure, on known quality, therefore avoiding weeping, wailing,  and gnashing of teeth.
