How to disassemble the Athearn SW-1000?

I just bought this one second hand (looks good) and want to convert to DCC. But I can't find any screw or hint about disassembling the unit, i.e. take the body out.



Thanks!

I think it snaps together around the air tanks... if you pull the shell apart at the bottom (air tank) near the fuel tank... the frame should drop out.

Thanks, with the help of a flat screwdriver I managed to split the body from the chassis.
