I was given this set without a manual and showing very little track time. I noticed the engine wobbling going down the tack and after close examination I noticed the drive rods hitting the shell at the top of the wheel rotation. I contacted Atlas requesting a manual to find out how to remove the shell. Their only reply was; "remove 6 screws, we have no further information".
So I removed the 6 screws and ground down the shell with my Dremel and that solved the problem.
My questions are, has anyone else had the same problem ? Do you have a manual you would share ? Does this engine have a reverse ? mine only goes forward. It's a decent puller (3 passenger cars) , whistle and bell work and a good smoker. How old is this set ?
Thank you in advance for and info you may be able to share,
