Does anyone know where i can get some plans on wooden storage cases , they open like a " V " with hinges on the backside. and you can store your trains on the left and right side .

looking to make a few to transport my trains when the club sets up the modulars at different events , I have tried the cardboard box idea but engines got damaged from sliding around and then the dredded "the bottom falls out"

any ideas would be greatly appreciated....Thanks

I saw an article in an old Model Railroader mag that someone built carriers out of square PVC pipe from home depot. They basically cut it in half. Then used a piano hinge on the bottom. On the top a good quality latch. They used a heavy foam with the shape of the engine hollowed out of it. Then glued half the foam on each side of the pipe. Basically a cheep hard shell carry case.
