Product Description

 Test track laser cut box - Digitrax Zephyr version

Maintain/program your locos away from the layout.

I used to have a bit of wood with some track on it for testing locos, but frequently found the kit I needed for the job was scattered all over the place. Now this handy box can store all the needed kit in one place, ready for quick use, and occupies less space on the workbench.  Job done :)

No equipment is included.  This kit is ONLY the laser-cut box!

International Shipping Note: Physically the kit is too big for Royal Mail, so it is shipped by DHL. The shipping cost is almost as much as the kit! so it really only makes sense to order it with other things to make the most of the shipping.

UK shipping: its a big and heavy kit. shipped by Parcel Force (Express48)

The kit is laser cut from 3mm and 4mm birch ply.  Much stronger and friendlier than horrid MDF :)

The internal compartment walls have laser cut holes to pass cables through, but the back of the test box is solid - leaving you to drill holes for wires as needed, according to your use.

Test track "well": 645mm x 90mm. You can mount track directly in the well, but I use an insert so I can change set up (I run dual gauge O and On30)

Zephyr carrier: the central compartment has a separate "carrier" that holds a zephyr at a good operating angle, with the space for all the cabling that comes out the back of the Zephyr.

Angled Compartment size: internally 210 x 160 x 94mm, The open hole is 182 x 92mm. The kit comes with the in-fill pieces for the pockets with simple hinge and latches to create removable covers. Or you can use them to mount other panels into the box and still have them removable for access to cables behind.  

Drawer size: 200mm x 160mm x 50mm deep. 2 drawers in the zephyr version

Total box size: 651mm long, 180mm deep, 185mm tall.


Need a modification??

This box has been design to be flexible in use. I happen to use it with Digitrax kit. One customer asked for it to be used with a Digitrax Zephyr so that option exists as it was easy to do by modifying the central pocket and replacing the central drawer with a carrier designed for the Zephyr. (with all its cabling)

The original customer that had the idea wants it for DC use for a Gaugemaster control - so his has a custom insert for his particular controller. If the info is at hand I can usually come up with something.

If you have an idea needing a simple modification that also makes sense to me (ie not going take forever to do the CAD and someone else may want it!) then please contact me using the contact page and we can discuss. That's how this box came to exist in the first place!

I can make it longer using extension parts (in 210mm sections).  Of course you can just cut the end piece out of the track track well so your test track sticks out, but that doesn't look so nice :)
