The only ones to be produced I believe were brass, however, I have no idea who made made them.

W. KM. Walthers has made a Superliner variant of the Pacific Surfliner cars that are commonly seen in Southern California. Although not a true Pacific Surfliner Car, you might want to buy at least one until someone decides to make some.

Yes, the Walther's version is a Superliner in PS colors, and not a true Surfliner car.

Unless you're into z-scale, brass is your only option.

Cheers!

Actually, Union Station Products has recently teamed up with Palace Car Co., and they've jointly produced what seems to be a craftsman kit for Surfliners. They look somewhat accurate, and could sure use some detail, but they'll fit the bill for those of us who don't have deep pockets.
