HO Scale model storage

I am a great fan of these storage depots from DCC concepts:

However now for my railcars, like the Eureka 620/720s, plus the new Xplorers from Southern Rail and many other passenger cars, I don't particularly want to pull them apart all the time due to the fragile nature of the plastic connection between the cars. However as I don't have a layout and transport them often I can't keep them permanently coupled.

The longest MPD from DCC Concepts is 560mm long and that's unfortunately too short for trains like a two car Xplorer. Is there anything longer length wise in size available here or overseas that can take longer trains so I don't need to couple and uncouple them all the time?

If you've got the box to put them in I can point you in the direction of the people to get the foam from. 2m lengths, 6 slots for HO items - 28.5cm wide, you can cut it to length and width to suit your needs with a sharp scalpel. Let me know if you're interested and I will put you in touch with the vendor.

I have directed the relevant person here, I am sure he will make contact with parties that request it by some means.

Thanks Aaron Smile

OK the South Australian Railway Modellers Association Inc (SARMA) have foam storage trays as described above for sale at $40 collected from our club-rooms at Dernancourt SA - these will be done as "to order" as we are currently short on space.  

We have not attempted to post them (yet) but don't expect too many issues as being a single piece of foam they should resume their shape readily as they would be in transit for a short period of time only.  

Working out the postage it would probably be around $12 each but this would need to be confirmed with AusPost.

Further queries can be made via PM if anybody is interested - with work at the moment I am not able to respond ASAP but I will respond.

Additional contact can be made via sarma@sarma.asn.au
