Need help about this BTTB

Postby 2-4-0 RENFES » Fri Nov 18, 2011 8:25 am

Hi, I just received this BTTB Locomotive, and need to know how to remove. I see no screws and don´t want break nothing :grin:
My idea is rebuilt it like this Spanish Alstom "Renfe 276"

BTTB SNCF CC-7139

And Renfe 276 this one is N-Scale

I *think* there are some tabs on the bottom to fold out? Can you post a photo of the bottom?

I've long thought about cutting up a couple of these shells to build a more accurate model of this locomotive (yes, the RENFE version). I had two shells, but they've disappeared over the years...

It should come apart by removing the couplers, pulling the shell sides away from the wheel axles, pulling up on the shell.

Solved, broke the couplers there was the only solution :)
And work began. I will post a new topic this "Rebuild". Thanks you all ;)

I have 4 of these locomotives, the couplers would have come off easily by pushing the retaining spring to the side and pulling the coupler out. The shell is then removed with a small thin screw driver, carefully prying the shell off the frame, one side at a time.

I took one of mine apart to prep it for measurements to eventually convert it to an AEM-7, as the cabs match.
