Road number 412 was a special item among the Crocodiles. This locomotive was built in 1925 and in 2005 – in conjunction with the anniversary “75 Years of the Glacier Express” was painted blue to go with the Alpine Classic cars of the RhB. In addition to the reference about this anniversary, the locomotive also had the company logos for the two model companies Bemo and LGB on it. Both companies had offered this special version of the locomotive as models. Unfortunately, it did not run in this paint scheme very long – as early as 2008 it was overtaken by gear damage, which led to it being stored and scrapped.
This is a finely detailed model heavily constructed of metal with many separately applied details. The locomotive has a special blue paint and lettering scheme for Era V, road number 412, as the locomotive looked from 2005 to 2008 in special train use. 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 the blue paint scheme as it was in use and produced between 2005 and 2008 as a one-time series.
