Description and use of Hi and Low boxes


  The "Low" box inside height dimension is 2 1/4" deep. The " Hi " box inside height dimension is 3" deep. The "Low" box will hold the standard height freight cars (ie. 40' & 50') and locomotives (ie. F-units).  Excess height cars and modern locomotives (autoracks, Amtrak Superliner cars, etc) will fit in the " Hi" boxes.


  The " Low" boxes utilize space more efficiently for N Scale equipment and HO vehicles.  The length and number (4) of individual storage slots remains the same for HI or Low boxes.  These boxes are excellent for carrying long unit trains (grain, cement, intermodal  cars and up to 48 coal cars) and the engines to pull them.
