Product description

The unique all-glass front of the Glaskasten display cabinet offers you optimal visibility of your model train collection.

The GKI1,5 can accommodate over 5 metres of 1-scale trains over 3 shelves. The GKI1,5 is an example of the modular Glaskasten system, as it consists of a GKI1 and a GKI0,5 module side-by-side without separation, so you can display trains of nearly 1.8 metres long.

Track and gauge

Shelf spacing is suitable for 1:32 scale models, with enough height to extend pantographs. Track is optional and can be standard gauge 1 (45 mm), narrow gauge 1m (32 mm) or 1e (22.5 mm), this can be selected above. Glaskasten optionally supplies powered track on the cabinet with light, so that locomotive or wagon functions can be used (e.g. sound or light). In that case you can connect your own DCC command station to the display case.

Integrated lighting option

The shelf profile shape is optimised for best lighting your model trains. In the display cabinet with integrated lighting, each train is individually illuminated through a diffusor, making your models stand out even better. Optionally a built-in dimmer is available so you can adjust the amount of light to your taste. The light switch and AC lead are located in the bottom right corner. The AC lead is white to fit with most interiors.


Minimalistic design with metal construction and frameless tempered glass doors with soft-close hinges.

Glaskasten Modular System

The Glaskasten Module System is the only modular model train display system that can be extended in width and height without limits.

For large collections and long trains, multiple modules can be used side-by-side or above each other, forming one continuous display wall. Some standard combinations are available in our web shop, but there are so many sizes and combinations of options available that not everything is listed here.

  • Display cabinet with high quality soft close hinges and integrated adjustable wall mounting system.
  • Separately packaged tempered glass doors and side panels.
  • Clear manual with installation instructions (you can download the pdf below).
  • Wall mounting brackets with screws and plugs.
  • Available options:
    • Integrated LED lighting for each individual train
    • Integrated power supply with power switch, white power chord and optional dimmer
    • TrackLight: integrated LED lighting under each track

Packaging and shipment

Depending on the destination, Glaskasten display cases are either shipped in a sturdy box, or in a wooden crate on a pallet. This, and the fact that we only use carriers that specialise in transporting valuable products, results in relatively high packaging and shipping cost, but unfortunately that is necessary to minimise the chance of damage.
