A typical relay cabinet of the type found along Eastern Canadian rail roads in the 1960s, 70s and 80s. The prototype size is 139" high by 90" wide by 92" deep.

One could easily use these for industrial uses - in a refinery, paper mill, etc. They would look really good.

Now, if you could make one with the door open - that would be totally cool, to have a worker stepping out.
(On the railroad, they would rarely be open, but in a plant, they would often be opened, and, since most plants are secure, they would often be left open.)

Just to put my money where my mouth is, if you make one with an open door, I'll buy three (in TT).

I can make the door a separate part on the TT and HO scale versions. Then you can build it open or closed.

That's cool.

Maybe I can hide a servo inside, to run a semaphore? 0.9 inches square might work?

I just ordered two TT and two HO cabinets.
