    How in blue blazes does the shell come off of that Bachmann GE70 Tonner?? I been eyeballin' that sucker for the last 15 minutes and still can't figure that puzzle out.wall1
    The instructions shows some screws but,I can't find them..I suspect the fuel tank comes off but,not sure if that screw holds the motor.

    I'm guessing that you guys have the newer single motor unit.I doubt if Bachmann has changed the body mounting system though.If you remove the fuel tank you will find two screws opne on each side.If you remove them the body will come right off.

    Thanks John..Yes its the newer DCC equipped locomotive.I want to get inside to check and service the gears,flywheels and drive shafts and look at the cab and see if there is enough room for interior.

    Ok Guys,Its rather simple..Like Catt said remove the fuel tank-a tiny Phillips head screw holds it-and you will find 2 more silver Phillips head screws..Remove those and the body slides off.Thanks John!:D

    Larry, set the chainsaw on medium and swipe from left to right. sign1

    It often amazes me how manufacturers think, I believe that some manufacturers go out of their way to frustrate their clients. :curse:

    Will,What surprises me is I actually ask..Not so long ago I would have figured it out on my own..After all I have built Hobbytown and Penn-Line kits.I been tweaking drives for years starting with the brass diesels of the 60s.
