Remarks & Notes 
"Crocodile" Ce 6/8 II # 14270 from Erstfeld made a short fly today with the help of two large railway cranes back to the network. The 126 ton legend from the electrification of the Gotthard line in 1920, will possibly go back to one of its birthplace (Zürich Oerlikon) in the future. The crane in the foreground is a KIROW KRC1200 which can lift up to 150 ton, the other is a Gottwald (max 130 ton) from Vanomag company. For the crocodile on the old place see also www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=417783

The classic and classy electric "Crocodiles" of the Swiss SBB-CFF. They are the real ones that deserve the Crocodile nickname – Krokodil in German.
