Kato bookcases

 Picked up Kato 4 & 6 car sets of smooth-side passenger cars. Bought a couple more baggage cars (WoT) to add to it. I really like the cases that the Kato cars came in and would like to get one for additional cars. Does anybody know what the part numbers or case letters that match Illinois Central sets?

Only thing I came up with was on eBay, Kato # 10-210 thru #10-214, each number is for a different setup.  All the auctions I found were from overseas.  I couldn't find anything on the Kato website, even doing a part number search

I buy those from eBay store "Plaza Japan", especially now with the very favorable Yen/US Dollar exchange rate.  There are 2 sizes and several die-cut insert types. They also carry similar Tomix cases (made from hard plastic).

MBK (modeltrainstuff.com) sometimes has the Kato bookcases in stock.

 Thanks peteski, I found the cases but coming from Japan I not sure which case will fit the American cars. I emailed KatoUSA, maybe they will know.
