How To Disassemble LGB 26630 White Pass #3 Shutting Diesel
I've disassembled several LGB American Shutting Diesel models to install DCC power and/sound decoders with no problem. But this LGB 26630 Chinese-assembled unit has stumped me on how to remove the two metal handrails going into the top, front engine compartment. On the German or Hungry made diesels, these two metal wires just pull out. But I've tried to pull them out of this model and they do not come out even with trying to leverage them with pliers. I'm wondering if the Chinese folks crimped the ends of these wires inside the engine compartment, thus making them impossible to pull out without damaging the front of the engine compartment. Without removing these two metal wires, it's impossible to lift off the engine cover and engineer cabin to then be able to access the enclosed circuit board. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated for removing these two metal wires.
