A quick question...
I am looking at purchasing a black beetle motor bogie. Do they come apart easily for oiling etc? If so, how?
The answer is probably Yes Nick.
I say probably as I've never tried as all the areas requiring lube seem to be accessible without stripping down the unit.
There are 4 small screws on top surface of the motorblock which would when unscrewed allow the housing containing the pick-up mechanism to be removed giving access to motor assembly.
The Halling which I prefer (cheaper) has two small screws at base of motor block which immediately gives access to all locations that might require lube. I've just stripped one down. Halling disadvantage is the small wheels which might look out of place on some Locos.
