Fine Art Models has produced a total of 100 Crocodile models. All 33 of the original Be 6/8 II Crocodiles are in both green and brown, each complete with its own serial number and builders plate carrying the matching serial number. Additional units of 14253 have been produced in both green and brown, as this locomotive is still in service with the SBB between Erstfeld and Altdorf, Switzerland. One of the unique features of our model is its sound system and roller display base. The sound system is the actual sound of Crocodile 14253 digitized into an on board computer in the model.
Many people think an electric locomotive is silentnot so. When the brakes are released on the model, you hear the air from the brake cylinders released. The blowers for cooling the transformers turn on and off automatically and the air compressor starts and stops automatically as required, with the actual sound of the compressor coming from the end of the Crocodile where the compressor is located.
There is a whistle control that you, the engineer, can vary the length of. When the Crocodile begins to move, you hear all of the sounds of the rods and wheels moving across the tracks. The beautiful wood display base features inlaid track and prototypically correct catenary, as our model can pull its power from either the track or catenary. Set in the rails, are ball-bearing rollers that allow the drive wheels to turn in place.The operation of the locomotive is controlled by any standard 12V-power pack. Using Fine Art Models optional locomotive throttle power pack, when the throttle lever is moved from stop to slow, the locomotive releases its brakes, the compressor and blowers turn on, and the locomotive slowly builds power to a predetermined speed. When the signal changes to full speed, the locomotive automatically responds by building power prototypically to whatever speed you, the engineer, desire. When the throttle lever moves to slow or stop, the locomotive slows prototypically to the speed dictated. All this action comes in a space 254mm x 965mm (10" x 38"). And when you are finished running your locomotive, you put the leaded glass cover back on and you have a museum display. PLEASE ALSO CHECK MY OTHER AUCTIONS OF ITEMS..
