Prototype information

"Crocodiles". The Swiss mountain locomotives that pulled heavy freight trains over the Gotthard grades are known as "Crocodiles". The design (hoods mounted for articulation, stretched out shape) and the color green gave them their name. These units "snaked" like a reptile through the curves when negotiating turnout combinations and S curves. "Six-axle standard gauge locomotive, only for large curves, faithful reproduction of the 'Crocodile Locomotive' …" was the description in the Märklin catalog of 1933/34 for the reproduction of the latest locomotive from Switzerland. The design and the pulling power of the original locomotive impressed people so much at that time, that it became a synonym for progress and power. A legend that was part of Märklin's history from that point on. This legendary locomotive was offered in all of Märklin's scales. First in 1 Gauge and 0 Gauge, then in H0, and even in Mini-Club Z Gauge. It was the top product offered everywhere and thus became the unofficial "heraldic animal" of Märklin.
