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.
Both sides of the tubes are locked with transparent gates, which run in deep milled tracks. Breaking through of the trains is impossible!
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.
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.
are manufactured from plastic-coated aluminium profiles and available in a silver-grey colour. The tubes come to rest on robust fastened bolts. The wall holders are equipped with three holes to fix them to the wall. Wall fixings are included in the delivery.
The wall holders are also avaliable made of finished beech wood. We use a natural product based on citrus for the finish.

couple the tubes to your plant
.... and let drive the trains into the tubes
Protect your couplings
Especially rail car trains have sensitive couplings. So it's better to transport the train en bloc with WAWIKO-Tubes.
Weathered and grassed tracks
Mr Seiler is using weathered and grassed tracks to present his trains.
Tubes equiped with backdrops
Mr. Aumüller is using wooden slats which are laminated (wallpaper paste) with backdrops. The slats are positioned between the trains and the backside of the tubes.
Lighting of the tubes
Do you like to do handicrafts? Then it's a lot possible to lighting the trains. It's also recommendable to use LED ceiling spots to lighting the whole Showcase to reduce shades and to see your trains in the true colors.
A work of art?
You see a N gauge system (tubes 90 cm and 112cm). My wife said; Wow, that looks like an work of art. Perhaps we should buy more of this.... .... and that after she was against the showcase in her flat.
Cleaning the tubes
Clean or take dust off with a slightly moist cloth (with window cleaner).
Small scratches on the display can be removed with the polishing agents freely available on the market.
For deep scratches, first wet-sand with the enclosed special sandpaper (grain 2500) and after this use chrome polish.
