End Opening

All 16mm/G scale end opening boxes come in the same dimension options as the top opening boxes. The boxes in the photo have been manufactured for 45mm gauge as obviously a wheel holding strip is essential to keep the loco away from the side of the box. Any gauge is available. These boxes can be made any length & any width from 150mm or narrower. Like the top opening boxes, they come in three different heights – 150mm, 170mm & 200mm

This box is shown with the stacking strips option. More boxes can be stacked on top of this & they will all remain level

How are the boxes made?

The boxes are designed to be strong enough for their use & at the same time, be as light as possible – we all know how heavy some of our loco’s can be!
If you’re attending a show or running session at a friends house, you might be carrying your stock a fair distance so the construction design was very important.
Each box follows the same tried & tested design & is built using a mixture of different thickness plywood. Timber cutting is achieved using laser guided technology.

Once the main box has been completed, it goes through the various stages of final finishing which includes staining. After this process, the hinges/catches & handle are added. The box is checked through ‘quality control’ & is then passed fit for service.

All the timber used in the boxes is sourced from fully sustainable forests. That means that for every tree that is cut down – another one is planted, often more.

How strong are our boxes?

This is Alan. He’s a big lad & we wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of him!

Alan weighs 14 stone, so it’s a good job that our boxes are designed to take the weight!

We understand that Alan is available for other modelling jobs as well as posing for ‘Loco-Boxes’… Please contact Alan through Chris or Eileen, here at Loco-Boxes
