I've done 3 over the years, I take it you're referring to the "post" that carries the lamp, that's the only part I've ever had to remove, I usually just cut it off with a cutting disc in the mini drill, not had any problems one time I tried it with a razor saw, took ages and hand got numb grasping the handle. To hold the bogie out of the way an elastic band, strip of velcro or tape works for me. You could also wrap a piece of cloth or card round the drivers and valve gear if you're really worried.

If you look at the photo you will see the wires from the decoder mounted with the speaker in the loco body above and clear of the chassis.  There is plenty of room.
