    So Cool! Thank you, Thomas!

    I remember someone here was looking for one of these a month or two ago.

    Thomas: What a GREAT model!! Many thanks!!

    I am definitely going to have to build this. 1:38 is approximately Guage 1, or perhaps G-Scale, if I remember my model rail(way)road scales correctly (?)

    I love Krokodil-type locos!!

    45+ years ago, building a static model of a Coronation-class British loco started my model-building career in earnest. It also led to a lifelong fascination with model rails......The rest is history. Besides, I think that I have milked the Tractor Plant schtik for all it is worth. ;-)

    Now you have given me pause to think about a garden railway, terrifying the birds at my feeders and driving my long-suffering good lady wife into the stratosphere.

    "You are going to do WHAT???"

    Regards from your Canadian friend,

    Jim

    Ah but Steve K you asked about the Swiss Ce-6 and posted a great pic
    http://www.cardmodels.net/forum/showthread.php?t=5677&highlight=crocodile

    Now an E-94 goes past and an E-94 has gone past.
    But a Ce-6 waddles past with those fantastic unsynchronised systems of connecting rods rising and falling on an electric loco and a lifelong lasting impression has been made. :) :) :)

    Cheers

    yes, there i s a cardmodel of the Swiss Crocodile (the loco which
    initiated the nick-name "Crocodile") but it is very, very, very simple.
    I will ask the owner of the right if I would be allowed to make it
    available . . .

    Ah, yes. I did ask about the Swiss CE-6 Crocodile, but I gladly accept the E-94 and will give it a good home. Remember, beggars can't be choosers :wink:

    I have sent an email to the SBB historical department asking if scale drawings are available but have not received a reply.:( Anyone have some good drawings?

    Thomas,
    I'd love to register, but I don't read German and the site keeps rejecting my registration for reasons I can't interpret. Any suggestions?

    Your user name(Mitgliedsname) has to be your first and last name, and you also need a password(Passwort). That may be what is hanging you up.
