** EFFECTIVE 9/9/18 **

It has been 14 years since we started selling storage boxes and carrying bags. We have gone through several suppliers for both items in order to maintain prices. However, economics and inflation have caught up to us and there is no way we can sell our products for less than what they cost us. We now forced to implement our first price increase for our storage boxes and carrying bags. Storage boxes are now $12.50 each and carrying bags are now $69.95 each.

If you want to get a quote for shipping on an order, please email us using
the link below (you must have a mail client installed for the link to work).

Currently we accept Money Orders, Personal Checks (order will be held 10 business days for it clear), and PayPal.  We can accept all 6 major credit cards and some gift cards through PayPal even if you don't have a PayPal account.

We try very hard to charge exact shipping.  The new USPS rates (January 2020) are very anti business. They have really gotten out of control.  Please don't blame us, blame the USPS! However, the USPS is less expensive than UPS or FedEx.  You can always email us to get an accurate shipping cost.   

You can click here to see the USPS Zone chart to look up your zip code to find out what zone you are in and then find the zone in the table below to determine the cost of shipping.

If you can find a cheaper way of shipping, please let us know! We are willing to consider reasonable options.

We have a $4.00 surcharge for every 4 model train storage boxes purchased to cover the cost of shipping materials.  The box we use to ship our model train storage boxes is very large but we want to do everything we can to get your boxes to you in mint condition.  A typical order of 4 model train storage boxes, 1 carrying bag, and 24 divider strips can be estimated as a 15 pound package via the United States Postal Service (USPS  Such a package will cost as follows (insurance is extra):
