    I thunk you folks might like to se how I'm storin' my goodies. I work they scrapped some black foam rubber with nice black velvet on one side and cutouts for locos, very little modification to make it work. Only half the cutouts are removed so I can add more later.

    If I have the original box, I just use that. Plastic bins are those inteded for under bed storage. They are not kept under my bed, but that type o fbin is the perfect depth.

    be very careful with any sort of rubber packing. I have seen the foam that comes with brass models eat into the paint job when the plastic sheet that comes with it was not used. I heard that the anti-skid stuff for under rugs etc. will chew into your plastic models. Put some plastic sheet around your models.

    Sorry for taking this off topic, but I just wanted to say welcome to 'minibusse', nice to have another Dane on (the) board, hopefully you will visit this place frequently, and maybe even recommend it to other Danes so we can have some layout and 1:1 scale pictures of Danish trains.

    Now back to the topic, I simply store the few locomotives I have in a drawer, I haven't collected that much yet, so it still fits in a small drawer. Hopefully that will change one day :)
