I make reproduction and custom cardboard inserts for model trains, mainly Athearn but I do other brands too. If you do not see what you need please feel free to email me and I will get you a custom order quote. If you got that special HO train and want to ensure it is boxed up just right feel free to contact me with a request for a custom insert! Custom inserts start at $2.00 for most freight cars and $3.00 for most engines each.

You can mail me your train and box if needed and I will design an insert up for any box you may need it to fit, if you need a custom box I can make them up too.
Train manufactures used several types of cardboard's for packaging I have searched for several years to get as close to original. Some of types I can match closely here are several options for you to pick from for inserts:
white on 1 side: .020" and .030" thick
brown on both sides: .020", .030" and .050" thick
corrugated white on one side: B flute (Athearn used this)
