Brings the model to life when you can see the crew in the cab. A little tricky to remove cab. - the removal of the loco body was fine, a thin piece of plasticard, inserted at the four points as shown on the loco instruction sheet. - and the standard gentle wiggle as you lift away.
But the drivers cab stays with the loco body shell. that threw me, as the diagram on the loco instruction sheet shows the cab staying with the loco chassis. So next was the tricky part as i was unsure how to remove the cab from the body shell. - as right behind the cab is the spring contacts for the pantograph. plus i was worried about snapping the cab itself.
I dont know which is the correct method to remove the cab as the cab on either end came out different.
cab one, my first attempt it seemed the cab is held in place in the same fashion as the loco body. So two thin pieces of plasticard slid down between the cab and body shell. which seemed to disengage the plastic lugs on each side of the cab near the windows, and it came loose. I was able to then gently remove it. fitted the driver and re-installed the cab in the same way it came out. clicking back in place.
being a bit more confident as all had gone well, i attempted the second cab. but as i inserted the plasticard down one side of the cab/body shell the front black light bar came loose at first i thought i'd broken it. but it turns out that is also only clicked in place and with the light bar removed there was more room and the cab came off better than the first attempt and also went back on easier, with both the cab clicking in place followed by the light bar. it was job done. nothing broke, and everything still working.
The crew are printed in colour, which saves painting them, even though the colour looks a little faded it works perfect. they fit snug into the seats so i didn't even bother gluing them.
A good purchase.
