History and use
The model is an Austrian Federal Railways (Österreichische Bundesbahnen or OBB) 1020 Class Electric locomotive. The 1020s were identical to the Deutsche Bundesbahn/Deutsche Reichsbahn E94 Class locomotives. Forty-four E94s were transferred to the OBB after World War II where they were given the class number 1020. They were affectionately known as 'crocodiles' due to their appearance.

Bockholt produced this model in 1983 and again in 1985. Variations of the model included Deutsche Bundesbahn liveries in blue and beige, Deutsche Reichsbahn liveries in green and red and an Österreichische Bundesbahnen version in orange.

The model is housed in a wooden box.

The T-House model rail collection is a collection of national and international significance due to the size, quality and scope of the collection.

The collection, assembled over 30 years from the 1970s to the 1990s, holds 10 000+ models of locomotives, carriages and wagons. The collection is in excellent – often mint – condition. The models were collected by Mr Marsden Williams, who was born, raised and spent his life in the Wollongong area. Mr Williams was a business man who was renowned for philanthropy, he was an intensely private man, who nevertheless was well connected across the Australian business world. His 40 year fascination for model railways reflected his own interest in precision engineering, and his financial success allowed him to pursue his interest to a remarkable extent.
