|Catalog Number 15L1 - 1930’s Industrial Locomotive - Initial Setup|
Page 3 of 9
The locomotive is shipped in two boxes. The smaller box (the one this manual was in) contains all of the parts except for the main assembly of the locomotive. When unpacking this box be sure to examine all packing materials so that no parts are missed. You should have the following items in this box:
Certain locomotive options that you ordered may be installed in the locomotive, may be enclosed in this box, or may be shipped separately. Some other items that are part of a train set may also be shipped in this box.
The larger box may be opened by cutting the tape on the top flaps and tearing the glued surfaces apart. On units shipped by truck or ocean freight you will also find a piece of plywood that must be removed by pulling it upward at the corners. After the box is opened and inspected for damage, and you can see what is inside you may want to cut the box around on all four sides slightly above the bottom so that the top part can be removed (do not cut it if damage is found). This reduces the amount of lifting that is needed to remove the locomotive. To continue unpacking remove the two hex nuts on the bolts located to each side of the locomotive. Carefully remove the cross piece held down by the nuts and its related packing material. The locomotive is ready to be lifted out at this time.
As soon as all parts are unpacked inspect them for any damage. Shipping damage must be reported to the shipping company as soon as possible. Vibration in shipping can cause fasteners to loosen, check all parts before operating.
