Marklin 18045 - Crocodile Replica
- Reproduction of the very first sample of an H0 Gauge Crocodile.
- Die-cast zinc.
- mfx digital decoder included.
This is a reproduction of the first H0 Gauge Crocodile prototype ever made at Märklin from 1936. The frame and body are constructed of die-cast zinc. Both trucks are powered with jackshafts and side rods. The locomotive has a factory-installed mfx decoder, so that it can be used on present day layouts. Sufficient clearance must be ensured due to the reproduction of this historic sample. The headlights change over with the direction of travel and will work in analog operation. There are sprung pantographs without an electrical function. Length over the buffers 21 cm / 8-1/4".
One-time series with a certificate of authenticity
Originally, the model of the Crocodile in H0 was planned as early as 1936, and it was supposed to come out in the marketplace under item number CCS 700. However, it remained as a prototype – not least because of circumstances of the times. An H0 model of the Crocodile was not presented until 1947 as item number CCS 800 – later 3015.
