Box Restoration & Remaking Process 2019-12-11T13:00:37+00:00

Restoring Train Set BOXES

1 – All boxes are restored by hand to authentic Hornby sizes.

2 – Some original “straw-brown” cardboard pieces can be re-used, or the Lids, Bases and Partitions are made from various 1.4mm craft boards.

3 – Box Lids are strengthened at corners and along seems with re-enforced fibre tape.

4 – Box partitions, for wagons, carriages, and loco-keeps, are strengthened with balsa wood.

5 – Boxes re-covered with authentic papers and colours.

6 – Locomotive cover-wrappings are restored or replaced (pre-war).

Please ask me if you would like your damaged Train Set Boxes repaired and restored, or if you would like me to make a new box to house your unboxed trains.
