Title: HO Freight Car Box Inserts
Post by: DBriel1966 on December 20, 2017, 07:30:23 PM
 I have the box for a HO SOO LINE 42' Steel Gondola, but not the plastic INSERT that fits into the box. This is in the OLDER PRE-SILVER SERIES type of Box for HO Gondolas. I scrapped the INSERT a few years ago because it got damaged. The box and the freight car are both in good condition. I would like to know if you have the Box Inserts that fit into the boxes of your HO freight cars.  David Briel.

Reboxx has replacement boxes, and inserts for their boxes, for many locos and cars:

You might want to contact them to see if they have a replacement that will fit your car.

The initial cost is high but to me the storage space saving and carrying convenieces far outweigh the cost.  I have three of them and want another.

My goto are Really Useful Boxes (http://www.reallyusefulproducts.co.uk/usa/html/boxdetails.php). The 4 litre is my default box, with the 9 litre for taller models, junkers, and N-scale models in jewel cases. The 11 litre is perfect for steam or 85' +/- cars (HO scale). The 4 and 9 stack with each other, but the 11 doesn't with them. Eventually, I will add something larger for my 2-rail O equipment, but I've not yet decided on a default box for them. (yep, I model in multiple scales)

Other sizes are handy for electronics, weathering, paint, wiring, DCC, magazine storage, etc. Walmart and other big box or crafting stores sell them or something similar. Any one of them will also work, but make sure that the box is rigid (doesn't twist or flex under a load) and that the latches are snug.
