I keep all my stuff in them.
I have yet to have any trouble with them.
One thing I do is keep locos in little clear polythene bags, makes them easier to lift out of the foam without bits 'catching'

Great thanks for the tip with the plastic bags :thumbsup:

Oh, and for empty boxes I flat pack them and 'nest' all the inserts to reduce space. Then they go under the bed in a big cheap underbed box thingy I got from Ikea.

Sounds like a good plan to me cheers :D

Not N Gauge, but utterly irresistible...

Need some context here. What's so special about this model and/or loco?

Cheers, NeMo

My reasons? A wonderful little loco with loads of character, one of my favourite Japanese engines. There is a model in N Gauge (I have one), but they are hard to get hold of. The H0 model is just irresistible.

Well, my hot weathered green Class 22 (from the milk tanker set) died this afternoon :'( .
It had been running merrily away at a nice slow speed when it just stopped - the lights worked fine but no motor control. Checked it on my laptop via my Sprog - chip found (and working in another loco) but no movement, put the blanking plug back in tried it with a 9V battery but still nothing. I've even tried power directly onto the motor and nowt.
Phoned Dapol, they said phone DCC Supplies. Phoned DDC Supplies, and seconds later it was booked in and a pre-paid returns slip had been e-mailed to me.
So off it goes to DCC Supplies in the morning.

Sorry to hear your tale of woe, Mickey, and hope it comes back in better shape from DCC.

So do I.

And just to be a glutton for punishment, I got a weathered 'Evening Star' off eBay last week! Would have been rude not to - listed as new (and definitely looks to be) for under 80

80! :goggleeyes: Nice price.

Can I suggest you copy your post about the class 22 into the review section as, although most of us love the ones we've got, it helps to have such info for anyone looking to buy?

This lovely pair on ebay this afternoon (nr.mint except for a broken buffer) for 50 & 8 p&p.
Well pleased.
As it is my intention to model a "version" of Le Gare de L'Est Paris I'm not sure what use I will have for it(except I suppose I can always apply Rule 1) but at that price I simply could not resist

I just think people overvalue argument because they like to hear themselves talk.

Just secured this on ebay an hour or so ago for less than 51.00 plus 10 p.& p.
A bit nearer home in Paris his time.
The first 5 of the Class were outshopped in the Green Maurienne Livery.
Very pleased with both purchase and price.
