I recently acquired a Rivarosi Heisler HO locomotive. It runs fine on DC, and after I switched out the X2f couplers for Kaydees. But the headlight is burned out. My question is how do I remove the boiler so I can get at the bulb in the headlight and install a new bulb? The rear light is working fine. I don't want to mess it up, so any help would be appreciated. Oh, yes, I also would like to be able to successfully reassemble it after I replace the bulb! ;)
