How about soldering iron and desoldering braid to suck up the solder?

I want to replace the solid roofwalks on my older brass, some of which are factory painted.  Kadee makes the best on the market, IMO.  The caboose walks and platforms are wider than Kadee’s freight parts so I’m not sure if these are suitable.  I’m after the see-through appearance.


I was thinking about running a razor saw under the walkways to cut thru the solder joints and, since I’m repainting the roofs anyway, shallow scratches won’t matter.  Do y’all have another suggestion?
