Brawa BR 232 H0

In the late 1960s the railway of the German Democratic Republic (DR) ordered successors for their V200 class. The new class should have an electric heating to pull also passenger trains. The first two series (class 130 and 131) did not have a heating equipment yet. In 1973 the first of 709 samples of the electric heater equipped 132 class had been delivered to the DR. The externally quite similar 130/131/132 had a diesel electric drive and a 3000 HP 16 cylinder 4 stroke prime mover 16 Tsch more…

BR 94 (Tn) H0

For service on secondary lines with a light superstructure, the Württembergische Staatsbahn bought ten-coupled tender locomotives of Class Tn with 11 tonnes axle pressure, which were built by the locomotive factory Esslingen between 1911 and 1914. The Württemberg T5 (also available from BRAWA) was the model for this development, many parts of which were the same as the Tn. All 30 Tns were taken over by the Deutsche Reichsbahn Gesellschaft as 94 101 to 94 130 and provided very good service in more…

BR 14 H0

The two new models that Brawa is launching are beautiful, fast and enduring. The S 9 Länderbahn in green and the DRG’s BR 14 in black are genuinely beautiful steam locomotives. Brawa’s models are just as appealing as the originals, and they incorporate a whole host of precision details such as accurately replicated paintwork and true-to-epoch lighting. The boiler, chassis, gangplank, tender box and spoked wheels are also precision made in die-cast zinc, and the locomotives have doors that open more…

ET 65 H0

Electric Railcar ET 65

Between 1961 and 1963, all the 23 railcars were transferred to the Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt depot and completely reworked. The most striking modification was the complete replacement of the front section and the rubber corridor connections between the carriages. Post 1968, after the modernisation, the ET 65 railcar with the road number 465 provided a reliable daily service until it was replaced by the S-Bahn suburban rail service in 1977. Initially, the modernised ET 65s more…

V100 DR H0

Shortly after LKM Babelsberg had delivered the two prototypes of the new BR V 100, the government of the GDR decided to stop building locomotives here. Now only the „VEB Lokomotivbau-Elektrotechnische Werke Hans Beimler“ was responsible for supplying new traction vehicles. Following the experience with V 100 001 and 002, a third prototype was produced there, which proved itself in trial runs. Therefore the first serial engines were delivered to the DR in 1967, including V 100 007, which was put more…

Hh H0

Steam locomotive class Hh of the Royal Württembergian State Railroad, Type 0-10-0

The main load of freight traffic of the Königlich Württembergische Staats-Eisenbahnen (K.W.St.E.) was carried by the three-coupled class F and Fc freight locomotives. There were only a few five-coupled class G Klose locomotives which were used particularly for steep inclinations.

The increase in freight traffic meant that freight trains had to be coupled more frequently to two locomotives. This however was very more…

Baureihe 19.10 H0

The 1930s were a decade of major global innovations in the field of railway technology. New electric and diesel-powered locomotives revolutionised the world on rails. Steam locomotives were also improved and attracted a great deal of attention by breaking world records in Germany and Britain, attaining speeds of 200 km/h. How-ever, experts were well aware that the traditional steam engine had reached the end of the road, at least as far as further increases in speed were concerned. Possible more…

Württembergische T5 H0

steam locomotive, type 2-6-2; aka DRG BR75

BR06 H0

standard locomotive type 06; 4-8-4; 3 cylinders

According to old sources, the Deutsche Reichsbahn traditionally painted its streamlined locomotives in an elegant dark red during the mid-nine-teen thirties. The BR 06 was allegedly also painted in this colour. This is supported by several illustrations.

S 2/6 H0
