More than 200 new products in gauge H0 and N
The BRAWA novelties 2019 are there! BRAWA is bringing out over 200 models in gauges H0 and N – with the finest detail and exceptional realism. This year’s new products in H0 gauge once again include a large number of new locos and cars – such as diesel locomotive V60 in DB and DB AG versions, allowing BRAWA to fill another gap in its own diesel locomotive range.
Electric locomotives E11 and E42 – of the first generation – come in four different DR versions, and with the “Silberlingen” BRAWA is bringing a series of new passenger coaches to specialist retailers, which have until now been used by DB Regio and owe their colloquial name to their brushed stripe peacock eye pattern.
At the Nuremberg Toy Fair, BRAWA is once again offering exclusive limited edition trade fair models. These H0 and N gauge models are supplied with authentic period advertising logos and can only be ordered from BRAWA specialist dealers during the 2019 Toy Fair. Contact your BRAWA specialist dealer as soon as possible about this model and get your own personal copy!
Classics of local transport: Passenger coaches "Silberlinge" DB
The conversion programmes for 3yg- and 4yg coaches allowed the German Federal Railway to address the shortage of coaches caused by the war for the first time from the mid-1950s. However, the construction programmes were limited initially to developing urban rapid transit and express train coaches. Following this, the German Federal Railway created capacity for developing new commuter coaches (n-coaches). The constantly growing demand for increased traffic volume and the fact that the 3yg had only been designed for a short service life, led to the appearance of the first prototypes for the new n-coaches in 1958. Based on the findings of the preceding new developments and prototypes, three basic types emerged with five 1st class compartments in the centre of the coach and two large 2nd class cabins (AB4nb), three large 2nd class cabins (B4nb) and two large 2nd class cabins and baggage compartment with by different coach manufacturers as well as at the Karlsruhe and Hannover refurbishment facilities (Aw). At first, conditions in the extremely cramped conductor’s space in the BD4nf were less than ideal, and it was soon nicknamed the “rabbit hutch” by staff, leading to discontent and safety concerns. As a result, Aw Karlsruhe rebuilt the conductor’s cab, producing a control car in 1972 with a fully-fledged conductor’s cab without any through access to the next coach. These changes meant that the Karlsruhe version differed significantly from the previous “rabbit hutch” with its passageway between the coaches. From the mid-1980s, the Federal Railways started to modernise coaches that were in some cases already 20 years old. Following several design studies, the positive features of the individual programmes were combined at Aw Hannover in the new Hannover design. New features also consisted space for the train conductor (BD4nf).
Although prototypes had also been trialled with side panels made from aluminium, standard steel and corrugated side walls, metal panelling made from stainless steel (V2A) was eventually chosen for mass production. Since the coach paintwork corrosion protection was not required for this material, the n-coaches were abraded under the windows using a peacock eye pattern. This abrading pattern and the silver surface of the V2A quickly earned the n-coach the distinctive nickname “Silberlinge”.
The BRAWA models “Silberlinge” show true-to-original construction differences and different wagon floors with different heating types. Also the car roofs are designed differently and even show the welds in fine replica. The passenger coaches will be on sale in the 4th quarter of 2019.
