It's called "ethafoam" and comes in varying densities and thicknesses. It's the same stuff they pack computers and many electronic components in nowadays. So far, I've dropped two locomotives in these cases... my Mich-Cal #2 from around three feet up onto concrete, and my #21 from two feet up onto hard dirt. Neither loco was damages, nor were the cases other than a bent corner protector. I always built a separate case for the tender if there is one.

Here are a couple of links to the archives if anyone is interested...
