Hi Kirk,
Looking at the information for 3ALQ at the RCSB:

…I see that chains A-F are TNF and chains R-W are TNFR.  

There are multiple ways to skin a cat, but for example, you could delete all the TNF chains with command:

delete :.a-f

General documentation on command-line specification in Chimera:

I hope this helps,
