lIt has been 2 years since all of our communications have been by mail order. Snail mail or e-mail only. All orders had been coming in through these media so the telephone system was eliminated. Welcome to the 21st century.

  • O and HO GAUGE ALL-METAL OK Streamliners Passenger cars are AVAILABLE NOW ( Pullman, smoothside, and Budd type )Kits and assembled units. Custom shop services. These cars match the KASINER and HERKIMER lines in era style and looks but we have improved the materials and expanded the available car selection by making each car to order through our unique custom service. Each customer can order the window and door configurations not made by other manufacturers. Because these cars are made in the USA, orders are handled with a personal touch.

    OK Streamliner HO and O gauge passenger cars are sold undecorated, non-painted, and otherwise not detailed for specific "road" names. Detailing for the individual modelers' layout is his/her own responsibility. OK Streamliners provides a starting point with all metal, prototypical, scale, cars. Every railroad ordered its' own unique configuration of doors and windows for its' cars. OK Streamliners is the only company providing this same service option to its' modeling customers. Cars will be configured using real car plans. The competition uses the same 5 or 6 cars for all it's sets by only painting for different roads and sometimes take years to come out with new sets. . These "toy " cars are also not true scale representations. OK Streamliners puts forth the extra effort to make our cars look, feel, and sound like real cars taking only days to produce the ordered cars. We use six different metal materials to accomplish the realism and value modelers' should expect. "When modeling metal trains, only metal models will do."
