    That’s how I do it with all my sets. I even make numbered ziplock baggies for the parts.

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    Agreed ! I'm from The Netherlands and this IS still one of my favorite locomotives ever built. I remember as a little boy that my dad used to drop me off at the railway station in Switzerland, while he went shopping with my mom, so that I could walk around in the railyard and watch the crocodiles move along... Used to do the same in the Austrian mountains as well... Ah,.. those are good memories to have and to think back on while I'm currently living in the California westcoast "desert" and be locked up because of "Coronavirus mishandling",... Yes, Trump, that was towards you !!!

    @THERIZE is right. Originally these loco’s were used to haul heavy freight trains in the Swiss mountains. They were articulated built because of the tight hairpin turns to climb the mountains. I’m using a whole set of hopper cars behind the Crocodile. I liked the hopper cars in one of LEGO’s last good trains; and made myself some copies in a different color.

    I got some blue hopper cars made after the LEGO ones from a few years back. They look nice with the 🐊...

    They are going to if they sell enough of them. Look in the back of the instruction booklet. They specifically ask for people’s feedback if “we want this train-line to continue”...

    I ordered two of these, half a day apart. The first one will be here on Wednesday, but the second one states “Waiting for new stock” at the LEGO website order tracking. I guess I squeezed one through and then they ran out of them completely ?... That might last for a month, just like the Lamborghini...

    My Krokodil will arrive on Tuesday the 7th. Right after my long holiday US weekend, but that’s ok. I have a question for the Powered Up Gurus here: Is it possible to use the app of the Krokodil to control two locomotives; each locomotive with its own motor and hub. in other words; can the single app control two different hub/motor setups ?...

    I just finished my Sián built. No problems at all; slight color differences in the small pieces but not horrible. No missing parts like other people said. No mistakes in the instructions, everything seems to be right. And most of all; my Sián drives perfectly in any gear without clicking noises or grinding to a halt ??? When I get back home from work I will post a review on LEGO’s website. There were a lot of people complaining about this set; and I think it was awesome. There are not a lot of extra pieces on this box; but everything you need was there.

    One question for anyone who already has the set: I noticed that the tile code doesn’t give you a certificate this time; like the Porsche and Bugatti did, is that correct ? I’m slightly disappointed by that because I like have those hanging framed on the wall...

    Mine still "in warehouse" mode... But it means I still have a whisker of a chance that I made it through before they ran out of them... Here's on hoping that I'm right....

    So I ordered one last night at around 22:30 my time westcoast US. It states that it is in warehouse. And I ordered another one this morning about twenty minutes ago that now states “waiting for new stock”; and the website says “will ship in 60 days”... I guess LEGO is out of “🐊 Locomotives” for the US now too ?... But I should get the first one I’m hoping ?...

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    Yes. I got it added to the order. And I tried this morning and it will do it again, even if it states it’s on Backorder. So don’t give up on that just because it says Backorder.

    The limit is three here in the USA ?

    Same here. Got the order through, and took my VIP code for a small LEGO set on the side, took my money but nowhere is the confirmation email yet ?... At least I took a snap shot with my phone of the order number if it goes south. I do agree though, this takes away from the fun of buying a “special” set on opening night... It’s frustrating...
