BRAWA's calendar begins in 1948 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 still know it today.
In 1950, 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 favourite is the trolley bus with its complete electrical overhead wire system, which is produced up to the end of the year 2000.
In 1963, Artur Braun in Waiblingen changes its name to BRAWA and 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 love for the detail' - today's motto was a matter of fact then.
Brawa produces some of the highest quality models in HO 2-Rail DC, 3-Rail AC and N-gauge. Brawa specializes in exotic models that no one else produces. All the locomotives have can motors with flywheels and DCC interfaces. The AC models are all equipped with Marklin compatible decoders.
