HOBBY-TOTE STORAGE CONTAINER SYSTEM


HOBBY-TOTE - A System for Many Uses!

Protect your valuable model equipment with these versatile and economical storage containers from A-Line.  Storage containers are designed to hold equipment in an upright position to protect delicate details.  A must for club members or anyone who stores and/or transports model railroad and vehicle equipment.  They are also handy for storing modeling materials such as styrene, strip wood, wire, detail parts, etc. Hobby-Tote Storage Container System will last indefinitely with normal use and are also designed to fit into the A-LINE Hobby Tote Nylon Carrying Case for easy transport.

Innovative Storage Container Key Features

. Tray lids insure dust-free storage and maximum protection during transport
. Removable chip board dividers with foam cushioning (HO Only)
. Made from heavy duty 250lb. test, double wall corrugated cardboard
. Easy assembly...instructions included
. Clean, white exterior
. Approximate tray capacity:
HO scale-Up to 16 40' box cars or 8 85' passenger cars
N scale-Up to 98 40' box cars or 36 85' passenger cars
. Additional Foam Spacers available to provide additional cushioning for the ends of your models.

The new "Low" containers are here!  They are a little lower than the current boxes allowing the modeler to carry  5 boxes instead of 4 in the nylon carrying case.  They will hold the average height freight cars and locomotives.  Excess height cars (autoracks, Amtrak Superliner cars, etc) will not fit.  These low side containers utilize space more efficiently for N Scale equipment and HO vehicles.  The length and number of individual storage slots remains the same.  These cases are excellent for carrying long unit trains (grain, cement, intermodal  cars and up to 48 coal cars) and the engines to pull them.

For those of you who have a good number of HOBBYTOTE boxes, there was an interesting article in MAINLINE MODELER (February 2003). Mike Rose developed a mobile cart to make storing and accessing your box collection convenient and easy. Click here for a PDF copy of the article.


Another Hobbytote customers used #19302 Dividers and #19303 Foam Strips to create these custom storage drawers.
