The famous Swiss crocodile was a heavy electric locomotive that was used on long freight trains on the "Gotthard Railway". It was used in Switzerland. 46 units were built between 1919 and 1922.

Build a very detailed and fully functional model from your existing LEGO set "10277". The model consists of approx. 1653 individual parts and is approx. 65 knobs long. Some rare bricks from the LEGO set "10277" are used for the construction. Due to the clever positioning of the pivot points between the two nozzles and the main part, there are no gaps between the individual elements, and yet the locomotive is full of curves and switches. As in the prototype, the axles below the cabin are connected to the other axles via coupling rods. When driving through curves, these can swivel to the side below the cabin. The model can optionally be motorized with up to two Power Functions L motors. The IR receiver and the battery box are located inside the cabin. Front and rear lighting can also be integrated.
