The Crocodile locomotive comes from Switzerland and according to the included plaque was in operation from 1918 – 1986.

You will be able to add in Power Functions elements to turn this from a display piece in to a fully functional train, including app control.

I didn’t get a full press release for this just confirmation that it will be released on July 1st. Australian price is $169.99 and according to LEGO Australia will be a David Jones exclusive (and probably the LEGO certified stores).

    Very nice set and finally an extra train to the collection that is fully powered. The selection of the specific train model is interesting in terms of its historic use however (in my view) isn’t the most interesting display piece.

    I love this. Yet another home run straight out of the park. Sadly, like everything else I’ve tried to get my hands on this year, it may be some time before it becomes readily available. A DJ exclusive means it may figure later in one of their sales, so it may not be an issue to wait a little while. It does seem pricey at RRP. My ultimate Lego wish is a re-release of Emerald Night, may not be impossible if this is a success.

    OH YEAH! I’m in for this one! And hopefully we’ll see some add on carriages in the creator line as well more frequently! Fingers cross! What do you reckon?
