What we do
The origins of the business were started by a personal need to store & transport our own 16mm scale locomotives
Looking around, we could find nothing suitable for our needs, so decided to make our own – to suit our requirements.
By trial & error, we developed a carry/storage box design that housed the loco’s all the time, made it easy to get them into & out of the box & above all, a system that didn’t involve our engines rattling around in a box that was the wrong size for them!
For the larger locos (or any size if you desire) we manufacture ‘cradles’ that the locos run straight into from the track. The cradle is then lifted directly into the box. This system is particulary useful for long & permanantly coupled tender engines, although the design was developed for use with Garratt locomotives – anyone who has tried to pick a hot one of these up will know just why we did it!
Here, you’ll find a box of the correct dimensions to store & carry or transport your loco. If one of our standard boxes isn’t the correct length for your loco, we’ll make you one the length you need! We manufacture storage/carrying cases for 0 gauge, 16mm/G scale, Gauge 1, Gauge 3 & other scales/gauges.
