Can anyone tell me how to remove the shell of a Lionel Boston and Maine 8654 engine and its matching 9181 caboose? I would like to re-paint them. Thanks!

The locomotive should have a single screw at either end of the shell that need to be removed and it should lift right off. The caboose should have a similar setup. If not, then I believe there should be four screws underneath the frame of the caboose, one at each corner.

Wait. I see screws on the front and back. Maybe that's what you mean. Sorry

Yes, I should have clarified that I meant they'd likely be on the noses of the unit just above the running boards. Later ones had four screws located underneath for better aesthetics.
