More than 50 years of
"Models Trains with an eye for detail"
We have made our name with model train enthusiasts with our
intuition for new models, our high standards of quality and reliable after
sale service. Our products stand out because of their realistic details
which are true to the originals. We have summarized the most important
stages throughout 50 years of BRAWA model trains below.
BRAWAs calendar begins with the foundation of small distribution company
for electrical toy trains. In doing so, Artur Braun placed the foundation
stone for the company as we know it today.
Artur Braun takes over Europa Technische Spielwaren's exclusive rights to
sell. Together with the construction engineer Gunther Eheim they design
the first big sellers. The Europa electric train H0 ensures that the
number of customers coming to the small new company increases drastically.
The overall favorite is the trolley bus with its complete electrical
overhead wire system, which is produced up to the end of the year 2000.
Anker building block sets, pieces of countryside, trees, traffic signs,
tracks, dolls, teddy bears, a merry-go-round. After five years, the
product range is extensive. In fact, it is so extensive, that Artur Braun
exhibits his goods at the toy trade fair in Nuremberg for the first time.
1955The first cable car produced by Artur Braun for the H0 series was the
Model of the Nebelhornbahn in Oberstdorf. In the future this turns into a
specialty of the company. The feel for what the market requires and the
wishes of the model builders continue to result in new product ideas which
are sensational. Examples of this are a ski lift, a material cable car and
a model of the cable car going up the Schauinsland in the Black Forest.
Artur Braun in Waiblingen changes its name to BRAWA: A new company is
created. The patented brand name protects the products from southern
Germany all over the world. The new name stands for "Models with an eye
for detail" - today's motto was a matter of fact then.
In the meantime, BRAWA's product range of Model
Trains includes approx. 800 products. It
includes a large number of lights as well as a complete gantry system,
insulated cables and wires. An important new addition to the catalogue is
a range of semaphore signals and light signals. The production in Waiblingen can no longer stand up to the requirements resulting from this
diversity. Hence a new building is under construction in Remshalden /
1972The company Braunkabel is founded. The main product being produced: cables
of all types and diameters - also and especially for model building.
After moving into the new company buildings there is nothing to stand in
the way of expansion and rationalization of production. Internal company
organization is extended and organized optimally. The tool making shop,
plastics injection molding shop, enameling shop, galvanizing shop,
fabrication shop, department for bent components as well as development
and construction of new products all come together under one roof.
BRAWA sets new standards. The light Baden-Baden shows the degree of
technical perfection and detailed design possible in H0.
1985A small, busy shunting locomotive has developed into BRAWA's big seller.
Twenty years ago, the model of the KöfII was presented as a novelty. Now,
these special editions have turned into much sought after collector's
pieces. They fulfill the increasing requirement for true to the original
detail and fine workmanship..
BRAWA looks back over 42 successful years of business. The company has
developed into one of the leading providers of model train accessories
world-wide. Their new target: "Conquer the West": The first of the
successful US models of LIFE-LIKE is included in the BRAWA range.
The first model of a diesel locomotive made by BRAWA ensures an
enthusiastic market. Equipped with an entire range of details, the DR 119
proves itself on H0 tracks.
The range of Deutsche Reichsbahn locomotives is extended. The first
electrical locomotive to be produced by BRAWA is a model of the DR 242
Up until now, it is the largest German electrical locomotive: the E 95 02.
Between 1927-28 AEG supplied a total of six locomotives of the series E
95. In 1979, the last locomotive was saved from being sent to the scrap
yard, this was the E 95 02. Since 1966, the BSW group of the Bw Halle has
been spending its time restoring the E 95 02 at the Dresden Traffic Museum
. An ambitious project which requires a lot of time, enthusiasm and
generous support. BRAWA supports the restoration of the E 95 02 by
contributing 10 DM for every model of the E 95 01 sold.
BRAWA's 50th anniversary is the occasion for closing the last gap in their
range. Based on the original plans, the first model of a steam locomotive
is designed and constructed. The T3 for H0 tracks is announced at the toy
trade fair in Nuremberg.
The steam engine with tender engine BR 06 001 is generally regarded as
being a "giant engine". To the joy of many enthusiasts, BRAWA included
this model in the product range in 2001. Coupled with the five axle tender
T38St, the BR 06 had a LüP of 26 520 mm and hence was the largest express
2003 to now
