Hey there!
Just bought 3 storage cases from B&Q for £9.99 suitable for using as storage and transport caces for locos and rolling stock. Just need foam seperators adding. There may be some left at your local branch.

Sounds like a bargain! how many locos can you fit in each? Unfortunatly I dont have local facilities like that down here, B&Q is a 45 min drive for me,so I mostly build what I need from scraps and old items of furniture whats been thrown out.

The boxes are similar to aluminium flight cases but are painted. They are a nest so they fit one inside another when empty. I reckon once foam strips are added you'll get 5 or 6 "express" size locos with tenders and may be up to 8 diesel (37/47/56 size) locos in the larger box. Im intending to use the larger box for my larger locos, the smallest box for my class 08 and jinty shunters and the medium box for passenger stock.
Ive seen "specialist" transport and storage boxes for sale at £45 and more so thought these were a bargain.
Regards
Steve
