    Recently was able to get my hands on two pre-war lionel engines, and
    wanted to know about riveting. Never had any experience with this sort
    of thing. First is it hard to remove existing rivets, and how hard is it to
    put new rivets in? Just have one to replace, or is it best to just leave it
    alone. Both engines are in good working order, but would like to spruce
    them up a little. Any help would be greatly appreciated with any aspect
    of their appearance. Thanks.
