What is people's experience with Brawa's type of telex coupler? There is a thread about the telex coupler used by Märklin and other makers that works best with close couplers and not well with other (older) types of couplers but Brawa uses a different kind of telex coupler that seems to work well with "standard" couplers.
I almost bought a Brawa V36 with digital coupling (not the V36 but a Danish version of it, Brawa 41623) but when it was demonstrated in the shop the coupler in one end didn't work. I've also seen a youtube video of the V36 with similar problems.
That's why I'm interested in some feed back... if there is any?

I found a youtube video that may interest you in case you already hadn't seen them.






Mostly Märklin H0.

Yeah, it seems to work like a charm in the videos.

Copenhagen, did you ever get a Brawa loco with a telex coupler? I am looking at the Brawa V 60 and V 100 models which both have the telex coupler and was wondering if you had any good experiences you could share...

Hello
Mine works just fine.
The deco is configurex to do the uncoupling only when shunting Mode is activate.

Oh, it's an old thread of mine :-) Well a year or two ago I went to one of my model trains shops to look at it with the purpose of buying it. I got it demonstrated but it turned out that the coupler in one end of the locomotive didn't work, so I didn't buy it of course. A possible weakness of the Brawa coupler is also that there is only the upright pin to keep the cars attached and nothing else.
I have since bought two Märklin locos with their newly invented telex coupler, BR 80 37068 and V60 37654. They work like a charm.
