Help needed with Class 110 DMU.

#1

Post by Shortstuff »

I have recently acquired a Hornby R369A Class 110 DMU 3-car set and would like to fit some passengers but I'm struggling to find the way to release the body from the chassis to enable me to do this. Not having had one before, I'm unfamiliar with the procedure and don't want to used force unless I break something.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Think you will find small lugs on the side if the chassis above each bogie and possibly half way along. Gently prise the side of the body away from the lugs, slide a thin pieces of plastic in to hold the body away from the lugs then pull the body off.

Thanks to all for the help, I have now managed it.

There are 6 lugs on the glazing which need to be tweaked carefully before the body can be eased off.

Mission accomplished. :D
