G3e 6/6 electric locomotive no. 411

Rhaetian Railway 'Crocodile' articulated electric locomotive photographed in the Deutsche Museum, Munich, Germany, on 3 September 2010. This locomotive was taken out of service due to an accident.
See also picture #15627and picture #15294.
The designation 'G' means that this is a narrow (one metre) gauge locomotive, the '3' refers to electric drive, and '6/6' means that there are 6 driven axles out of a total of 6 axles.
The first batch of 6, numbered 401-406, were delivered in 1921 to a specification that demanded they should be able to haul a 200 ton load at 30 km/h up a 35% gradient, requiring a 1,200 hp engine at 11 tons maximum axle load.
The manufacturers of the Ge 6/6 locomotives were Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works (SLM), Brown, Boveri & Cie (BBC) and Maschinenfabrik Oerlikon (MFO).
