LGB 2040 Rhb Ge 6/6 Rhaetian Brown Crocodile, Collection Item

The Rhaetian Bahn´s most famous locomotive is the articulated "Crocodile" Ge 6/6 (G = narrow gauge, e = electric, 6/6 = six axles, all powered). Built in the 1920s, these 1,067-horsepower locos hauled freight and passengers over the steep grades of the of the Swiss Alps. Of the original fifteen, several still serve on special trains like the RhB´s Alpine Classic. Like the prototype, the LGB model is equipped with two motors. It can draw its power from an overhead catenary wire or from the track. The outside frame drive is fully operational. Additional number plates let you customize your own Crocodile.

The Prototype
When a number of Rhaetian Bahn (RhB) lines switched from steam to electric traction in the 1920s, the railroad needed powerful new electric locomotives. Between 1921 and 1929, fourteen of the famous Ge 6/6 Crocodiles were built. The distinctive front and rear hoods house two electric motors. Power is transmitted from the driveshafts to the wheels through siderods. With a sustained power rating of 1076 hp and a top speed of 55 kph (35 mph), the articulated RhB Crocodiles set a standard for narrow gauge electric locomotives that remained unsurpassed for many years. Several of these classic locomotives remain in service and can be enjoyed in front of special trains.
