General Questions

What's special about Bockholt's locomotives?
Bockholt's locomotives are detailed to the highest possible level, but you can let them run as well, and they are absolutely robust.


Are Bockholt's locomotives completely made of metal?
Yes. We use either steel or, for the small details, cast brass. All rod parts are milled out of solid steel, therefore they are much more rugged than comparable parts made of cast brass. The wheels of the locos are ring insulated, the tires are made of stainless steel.

Do I have to handle a Bockholt's locomotive with extreme care?
No. Bockholt's locomotives are soldered using silver solder at 750 °C. This makes Bockholt's locomotives absolutely robust.
