Re: Bachmann Spectrum 2-8-0

I have 2 BS 2-8-0s and have had both apart.  The body shell is one piece and attached by hooking over the front of the cast side frames and one screw under the drawbar (not the drawbar attachment screw) at the rear.  Just remove the screw, raise the cab end of the shell to clear the motor and slide the shell forward a bit and lift off.  I don't remember whether you need to remove the handrails at the back of the cab or not.

Hope this helps.
