Atlas GP40 Truck Side Frames
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, December 5, 2001 1:32 PM
I have an Atlas GP40 and I want to remove the truck side frames for painting. What is the best way to remove them, are the pressed on, or are they attached with a screw or fastner? I can't tell from the exploded view diagram how they are attached.

You don't say what scale your locomotive is. Atlas makes locomotives in N, HO, and O. In N the sideframes are NOT separate pieces. Atlas has a website www.atlasrr.com and forums in N, HO and O. Suggest you ask on the forum for your scale.

Your question was answered at the Atlas site which the question was asked as well.
