Has anyone managed to get the Smoke Box Door off a Hornby Terrier, without totally destroying it?


The Hornby web site instructions for chipping the Terrier, tell you to put it in the Smoke Box in place of the weight.

I spent a long time trying to ease the Smoke Box Dorr off, in the end I broke it off, It took a lot of effort to remove the 'glued' section as so much glue had been used during manufacture.

On contacting Hornby requesting a replacement Smoke Box Door by email, I got a reply after 2 weeks, saying that they don't have spare Smoke Box Doors or complete bodies. What a situation, the manufacturer has no spare parts!

So I am left with a loco with no Smoke Box Door, with the decoder hanging out.

Cheers
Dave
