Can anyone give me some pointers to how I can remove the motors from the trucks in this unit please?
I am not familiar with these units at all and I suspect that you might be better getting onto the kambach Classic Toy Trains site forum ( http://cs.trains.com/ctt/f/95.aspx
) , joining up and posing your question there? Joining that forum is free so no issue there!
There are a couple of forums but the one that came first on Google search was https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/category/train-forums
While there are Lionel Collectors here, they are virtually unknown so the chances of finding the info you want would be rare!
PS You could also check out https://www.lionelsupport.com/media/supplements/Supplement1to9/1Complete.pdf
which may show you enough as there is a motors section Section 15- 84 or there abouts!
