This is a must for every train enthusiast - a smart but sturdy oak case designed specifically for the storage and carriage of model locomotives. Locomotives can be expensive and a collector will appreciate the security afforded by these boxes. Brass hinges and a push clasp lock securely hold the lid in place. On larger storage boxes, two push clasp locks are fitted for additional security. Grooves are cut into the base of the box to allow the locomotive flanges to slot in when packing.
The external measurements of the box shown are 21.7cm long x 10cm wide x 11cm tall.
Each box is made to order with the internal measurements being determined by the length of the intended locomotive. As an example, for a small 0-6-0T (as per picture) or diesel shunter this could be 7.5 inches (190.5mm), whereas for a 4-6-0 express locomotive with tender this could be 18.5 inches (470mm). The internal length dimension will generally be 0.25 inches (6mm) longer than the locomotive length to allow for the addition of padding by the customer. Boxes for 0 gauge models internally measure 8.0 cm across, with a depth of 9.0 cm. We therefore offer the following standard sizes:
Option 1: 19.7cm L x 8cm W x 9cm H
Option 2: 33.6cm L x 8cm W x 9cm H
Option 3: 38.7cm L x 8cm W x 9cm H
Option 4: 47.6cm L x 8cm W x 9cm H
To add that extra special touch, we also offer a carrying handle and personalisation for these boxes. The carry handle is black with brass coloured end caps and the personalisation is carried out using a pyrography pen. The pen has a heated tip which is used to burn letters into the wood. You can add the wording of your choice up to a maximum of 30 characters including spaces.
We can also fabricate storage boxes for other model scales - please contact us for details.
