Glaskasten O-scale model train display case can now be ordered!
Development of this exciting new Glaskasten product is finished and a prototype has been built (see photo). The quality of design and finish will be just like the H0 display case.
Unfortunately all shows were cancelled this year, so we are unable to show this new O-scale model train display case to the public. Shortly professional photos will be made of the prototype and placed on this site. Production planning has been delayed slightly due to corona and deliveries will start in September.
Note: Apart from our own (amateur) photograph of the prototype, most images on this page are computer generated, based on our 3D CAD models. Professional photos of the prototype will appear here soon.

This high-quality model train display cabinet is built to the highest standards using tempered glass, aluminium and stainless steel. Each train is individually illuminated in the version with integrated lighting. Each track is powered in the version with powered track.
The unique all-glass front of the Glaskasten display cabinet offers optimaal visibility of your model train collection. The GKO1 can accommodate almost 5 metres of O scale model trains over 4 shelves. Shelf spacing is suited for 1:43.5 or 1:45 scale models, with integrated “catenary” at the right height to hold the pantograph in the right orientation.
Track and gauge
Track is optional and can be standard gauge (32 mm), or narrow gauge Om or Oe. You can also use your own track instead. Glaskasten optionally supplies powered track, 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.
Even an integrated roller stand is available to bring motion to your model train display case. The roller stand replaces the track on a full shelf, one or more shelves can be fitted with a roller stand.
In the version with light, each shelf has integrated LEDs with a diffusor, making your models stand out even better. Optionally the light can be dimmed.
