This is a model of the RhB
class Ge 6/6 I electric locomotive, the legendary Crocodile. This is a
finely detailed model heavily constructed of metal with many separately
applied details. The locomotive has a prototypical paint and lettering
scheme for Era VI, road number 414 as the locomotive still currently
exists. The locomotive is driven by two powerful Bühler motors on both
trucks. The locomotive has an mfx/DCC decoder with many light and sound
functions such as headlights, cab lighting, running sounds, a whistle
that can be activated by reed switches, and much more. The running
sounds also work in analog operation. The pantographs are powered by
servomotors and can be raised and lowered in digital operation. The
couplers can also be activated by remote control in digital operation.
The locomotive has many fine details on the superstructures and running
gear. The cabs have complete interior details and the cab doors can be
opened. 2 rail clearance devices without an opening for the LGB system
coupler are included. They can be mounted on the locomotive after the
servo motor powered coupler(s) have been removed at one or both ends.
The minimum radius for operation is 600 mm / 23-5/8".
Length over the buffers 60 cm / 23-5/8".
This locomotive is in a special
version in the anniversary year 2021 in conjunction with the 100th
anniversary of the Crocodile in use on the RhB. Of course, this is also
reproduced in the model - get ready to be surprised.
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.
