LEGO 10277 Crocodile Locomotive review & motorization with Powered Up, Power Functions and BuWizz

The LEGO 10277 Crocodile Locomotive is inspired by the Class Ce 6/8 II locomotive, first built for the Swiss Federal Railways between 1919 and 1927. This train model measures over 6” (16cm) high, 20.5” (52cm) long and 3.5” (8cm) wide. The recommended price is – 99.99 EUR – 899DKK – 99.99USD. Here is my review of the set:

The LEGO 10277 Crocodile Locomotive has official motorization instuctions with Powered Up components. As many of us still have mostly Power Functions parts, I tested the locomotive with the following components:

  • Power Functions AAA Battery Box (88000) or Rechargeable Battery Box (8878)
  • Power Functions IR reciever (8884)
  • Power Functions IR remote (8885) or IR Speed remote (8879)
  • Power Functions Medium Motor (8883)
  • Power Functions Large Motor (88003)
  • BuWizz unit

To fit the Power Functions IR components I had to change the roof of the central unit. I did not have the parts for a proper custom solution, so I only used the pieces found in the set. This is more like a proof of concept, feel free to use to make your own version:
