The S-Scale Trains
Used on the RP&LC
- - Ready for Travel - -
This view shows the case in storage mode or in travel mode. I prefer the cases with wheels and extensible handles.
This view shows the top layer of trains. Each layer is supported and protected with a tray made from sturdy cardboard. Two-inch strips are attached to a base with hot glue. Soft foam is cut to fit the ends. Those pieces limit horizontal movement. I often cut notches in the foam to avoid contact with the couplers.
I also cram some odd pieces of foam on top of the cars to limit vertical movement.
This view shows a tray from the side. Let me know if you would like detailed construction information about the trays.
