The uncoupling lever is held on in the bracket slots by friction. The two outside slots face forward, the two inside slots face the locomotive. The uncoupling lever can be removed by very carefully sliding the lever ends out of their slots, then moving the bar back to free it from the inside brackets.
It's a little tricky and comes off easier than it goes back on, but it can be done.
Hey Rusty, Thanks for letting me know. I was worried about getting around that bar. I do like the look of the dummy coupler on the front and I don't think I will need a working coupler there, but it occurred to me that this may be an opportunity to explore replacing the dummy with a ProtoMax or Kadee coupler on the front pilot. I do plan to also change out the rear coupler at some point, but that's another project down the road.
Thanks, Mike A.
