WAWIKO showcase systems

WAWIKO is a practical and inexpensive system for the display of your trains which consists of acrylic tubes with optional wall brackets. The trains are protected against dust, well presented and easy to display or to remove via means of coupling to your model railway layout. In future there is no need to hide your valuable trains in boxes or in the lower level of your layout. Free your layout of some rolling material to be able to drive more freely once again.


Gates of the tubes

Gates

Both sides of the tubes are locked with transparent gates, which run in deep milled tracks. Breaking through of the trains is impossible!


Tracks in the tubes

With tracks bautiful and useful

The acryl tubes are delivered without tracks, so you can select the tracks system of your choice. It is our opinion that to the presentation of a train belongs also a visible track bed. As the experience shows, it is not necessary to fix the track to the tube, but it can be done very easily.


Dimensions of the tubes

You can order all length ot tubes for the price of the next standard length.

quality of acrylic material

Tubes with an unlimeted life period?

Our tubes are made of a strong acrylic material with a material thickness of 4mm. The tubes are welded together and therefore very durable and “bend secure”! We use high quality acrylic material! As a result of our outdoor tests the last 15 years, we estimate indoors an unlimeted life period with cristal clear material.
