The Class 59/66 body shell has a clip at the cab front between the headlights, it is a little tricky to get open without some sort of damage.

The clip locks on to the cab glazing which is glued in. If you are careful, a knife can be used to lever it open.

Not Limas best design!

Alternatively, try removing the power bogie from the chassis, this will give you better access to the front but you may be impeded by the cab moulding.

To remove the power bogie, carefully undo the screws on the under side, remove the bogie moulding with the model upside down, push the 'inner' bogie end into the model so that the wheels fit inside, this should allow you to rotate the bogie and pull it out. be careful as the wires will still be attached.

The Hornby 59 is here, but it differs from the original Lima model around the motor and underframe.

The Hornby 66 is here, but also differs from the original Lima model around the motor and underframe.

I can't find anything for the Lima model but they used to supply sheets with the model I think.

Perhaps I am confusing the sheet with something else then.
