Need Suggestion
Posted by wcu boy on Sunday, January 19, 2020 1:43 PM

I purchased today a Lionel Southern caboose. I wanted to display it on my desk. Who makes attractive Lionel display classes for Lionel freight cars? I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

Just a suggestion: You'll probably get more results by posting this over on the CTT (Classic Toy Train) forum.

Measure the car, then look at the display cases for military models made by Airfix and others. There are a lot of different sizes, and one of them could likely be perfect.

.

There are also "local woodshop" versions of very nice display cases avaiable from the usual online sellers.

.

This display case was sold as an "O Scale" case. I had the maker add two risers so I could display some figures my daughters painted. It was $85.00 total.

My suggestion is get yourself a better title.  If you want to know about Display Cases, put that in your thread title.
