Larry,

Oh this sounds so familiar....  :bg:   


Good luck,

look forward to see your progress!

A little update on the vertical hoist.

The deck of the bridge has been finished.
Before rails can be laid, the support structure needs to be built.

That is my current project.

Does anyone know where these printed paper 'boxes' can be found?

They were the cut and fold type, printed off the internet.

I found this on the internet, but don't remember where.

I like the ones you got.

Michael,

I found the ones in the photo many years ago on the GnATTERbox website.

That site is no longer available.

Some printable stuff here,

but not crates, as far as I can tell. 


http://www.jennifersprintables.com/index.html


Also look at Google Images  "printable model crates for trains",

there are quite a few to download and print. 


Regards, Dave L.

Micheal, I printed your 'boxes' in three sizes.

Am cutting some foam blocks to put inside to keep the 'boxes' from collapsing.


Dave, checked out GOOGLE and found many 'boxes' to download.

Only problem, can't find a way to adjust the sizes.


They print the size each was created to be.

That's ok.

Larry


My printer allows an image to be printed as an 8x10, 5x7, 4x6, wallet size, etc. 

I choose the one closest to what I need.


Another way is to print a copy and have it enlarged, or reduced at a printing store. 

Not sure home printers can do this anymore. 


When I was building half inch trolleys I'd take a trolley plan (like in HO),

and have the printing shop enlarge to the correct size. 


Regards, Dave L.

If you put the image into Word,

you can resize it using Picture Tools and print.
