Description: English below

Vorbild
Die Engadin-Strecke der Rhätischen Bahn (RhB) von St. Moritz nach Scuol ist eine der vielen Schmalspurstrecken im schweizerischen Kanton Graubünden. Sie wurde von Anfang an elektrisch betrieben. Im Jahre 1913 kaufte die RhB sieben kleine Streckenlokomotiven, die als Ge 2/4 201-207 bezeichnet wurden.
Die Kraft des langsam laufenden Motors wurde ohne Getriebe über Schrägstangen direkt auf eine Blindwelle und von dort durch Kuppelstangen auf die großen Treibräder übertragen. Die Lokomotiven wurden im Personen- und Güterverkehr eingesetzt. Mehrere dieser Loks wurden zu Rangierlokomotiven mit Mittelführerständen umgebaut, doch blieben einige im Originalzustand erhalten. Bis in die 1970er Jahre wurden diese Lokomotiven vor leichten Güterzügen auf der Engadin-Strecke eingesetzt.

Diese Lok wurde von 1986 bis 1991 in mindestens sechs verschiedenen Versionen hergestellt. Dies ist die dritte Version umgerüstet mit einer Klauenkupplung die, obwohl Amerikanisch, doch möglicherweise realistischer für RhB aussieht als die von Werk aus montierte Hakenkupplung.


English

Prototype
The Engadin section of the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) from St. Moritz to Scuol is one of the many narrow-gauge lines in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. This line was operated electrically from the very beginning. In 1913 the RhB purchased seven small locomotives which were designated as Ge 2/4 201-207.
The slow-running motor was coupled directly without any gearbox via inclined rods to a jackshaft and coupling rods from there through to the large driving wheels. These locomotives were used in passenger and freight service. Several of these locomotives were converted to shunting locos with center cabs, but some were preserved in their original condition. Until the 1970s these locomotives were used in light freight service on the Engadin line.

This locomotive was manufactured by LGB from 1986 to 1991 in at least six different versions. This is the third version but modified with the installation of a knuckle coupling which, although an american type coupling, may possibly look more realistic for RhB than the hook and loop coupling installed by the factory.
