LGB 23407 Class Ge 6/6 I Electric Locomotive w Digitally Controlled Lights and Sound
The 30341 and 30342 passenger cars,
the 43814 boxcar, and the 36658 set with 2 parlor cars are available to
go with this locomotive. A train can be assembled with these cars and
the locomotive such as can be seen currently in use on a regular basis
on the RhB network.
1921 - 100 years ago - the first RhB Crocodiles, the class Ge 6/6 I
electric locomotives, were delivered by SLM in Winterthur. With a
performance of 800 kilowatts / 1,072 horsepower and a maximum speed of
55 km/h / 34 mph, these 66 metric ton locomotives fully satisfied the
requirements of the times so that 15 units all total were built.
Starting in the Eighties, they were replaced by newer locomotives so
that currently only 2 units - however very well maintained units - are
used pulling special trains. They are also used in regular operation
pulling historic cars.
