Attention to detail as a promise of quality
Powerful motors, precise drives and the harmonious interaction of motor and transmission give our locomotives driving characteristics that correspond to the original. They demonstrate very good low-speed characteristics and realistic maximum speeds. Technical refinements, including sound and even smoke for steam locomotives, provide additional train-driving pleasure.
Premium materials and meticulous workmanship ensure that BRAWA models are of the highest quality. Our locomotives are predominantly made from die-cast zinc, which brings advantages in terms of weight and robustness. To ensure extreme durability, the load-bearing parts of the lights are made entirely from brass or etched sheet metal. In addition, our bulbs and LEDs are characterised by a long service life.
Attention to detail defines every production step
Each new product is supported by our passion to create the perfect reproduction. As a result, we begin our work on every new model by conducting meticulous research — museums and private archives are scoured, originals measured and photographed in detail, and building plans and photographs studied. Then the actual product development phase begins. First, the design plans are created in CAD and compared against the original. This is followed by the production of casting tools, hand samples and pre-production samples. These undergo comprehensive testing with regard to their technical properties at our test facilities in Remshalden. At the same time, the casting tools are further refined in order to achieve the best possible driving characteristics and ensure that the visual refinements are as true to the original as possible. Only then do we begin series production, at the end of which the fine details are added by hand.
True added value
Attention to detail creates added value for the long term
BRAWA keeps its promise of “attention to detail” by producing models whose appearance and engineering are as true to the originals as possible. This represents genuine added value that continues giving the owners pleasure for many years after their purchase. BRAWA models are distinguished by a number of unique factors, including the German engineering excellence at our Remshalden location, high manufacturing quality thanks to the use of premium materials and high-quality electronic components and, of course, the many fascinating details we add to our designs. In addition, let’s not forget our constant development of both new and existing products, as well as our exclusive, limited edition series.
Attention to detail” also applies to our service
The BRAWA promise of quality also encompasses a generous range of services. These include spare parts supplies, maintenance, our telephone hotline as well as extras for retailers. Thanks to our large spare parts store, a large number of our parts can be reordered — even many years later. The drawing containing the individual parts list that is enclosed with each locomotive makes ordering easy. Delivery is quick and reliable. Naturally, we also carry out repairs, conversions and technical tests. After all, even the most well-maintained model requires an occasional visit to the workshop.
Just call us or send us your model by post. We’ll carry out the necessary work with know-how, passion and speed.
