I've disassembled many MTH locomotives but this one's got me stumped. Having removed all of the body mounting screws, I am still not unable to remove the frame from the carbody. The hangup appears to be at/in the nose of the locomotive. In desperation, I even read the manual, which was of absolutely no help at all.
The problem lies in the nose of the locomotive which refuses to separate from the carbody. I have resisted all temptations to use a bigger hammer and a pry bar because this is a favorite locomotive and I want to 3RS it.
Any help will be much appreciated.
