10277 Crocodile Locomotive is a Creator Expert set that was released on July 1, 2020.

Background

The Ce 6/8 I 14201, called the "crocodile locomotive" due to its long nose at both ends, was a locomotive prototype that was first produced for Swiss Federal Railways. In November 1913 the executive board of the Schweizerischen Bundesbahnen (Swiss Federal Railways) decided to electrify Gotthardbahn (Gotthard railway) from Erstfeld to Biasca. Due to World War One the SBB had to reduce schedules more and more because of shortage of coal. Therefore, in autumn 1918 only milk trains were running on Sunday. That's why the SBB forced – beside other important lines – the electrification of the Gotthard railway line. This electrification was completed 1920. For the traction on those lines the SBB urgently needed passenger and freight locomotives. The locomotive was delivered on 7 July 1919. The scheduled services started only in December 1919 (nota bene one week after the first Ce 6/8II Crocodile was delivered). The Ce 6/8 I 14201, which had been one of the first four prototypes, continued to be used until it was eventually phased out in 1982, when it was put in the Swiss Transport Museum. The Ce 6/8 I 14201 covered an entirety of 2,500,000 km in its run.
