D.L. & W. wrk caboose
Posted by trains2353 on Monday, June 12, 2017 10:37 AM

Working on a DL&W work caboose. Missing a front truck, so I will be replacing that. Overall, in decent shape.

I need to remove the cab and work bed for cleaning and truck replacement. Can't figure out how to do that. Can use some help as I don't want to break anything.

TIA;

Bob

Looking at mine (6119-25) it looks as if you need to bend the metal tab on the frame up, out of the way of the plastic post. Then slide the bed off the slides in slots on the frame. Then you can push the cab foward to remove it from the frame.

I tried it out and it Worked for mine!   Big Smile

 Good luck.
