Remarks & Notes 
The 33 locos of the Ce 6/8 II lot had been delivered as no. 14251 to 14283 in the years 1921-1922. They had been equipped with their typical bar-drive with a flywheel at the outer end to reduce vibrations. The 14270 stands as gatekeeper in front of the SBB Historic depot. Soon it will be repainted and than it should look like in her best days of Gotthard operation again.

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