Athearn Challenger tender shell removal
How does one get the shell off of the Athearn Challenger tender? I have removed the coal load to expose one screw there (not sure if it matters), I have removed the two at the rear underside and taken the back end off, but still no movement. Not wanting to apply brute force to a several hundred dollar locomotive, I thought someone might have already figured this out. Any help GREATLY appreciated.

If I remember correctly, I believe there is a hidden screw somewhere. If you still have the manual it came with, there is an exploded diagram included. A study of that may reveal the proper procedure.
BTW, welcome to TrainBoard! :D

Did you ever find out the final piece of the puzzle? I'm stuck at the same place.

NOOOO! :eek: :eek: :p
The online manual with exploded diagrams can be found here.
It looks like there is a screw under the rear most bunker hatch and under the coal load or the level gauge for the oil version.
