Remarks & Notes 
In january 2013, the "Crocodile" Ce 6/8 II # 14270, which was exhibited in Erstfeld on a short piece of track since 1982, was put back on the tracks by two large railway cranes and then temporarily stored in the old steam engine shed. A first attempt to lift the "crocodile" at 10.30 AM failed, because the locomotive was moving around its longitudinal axis. The mounting on the crane had to be done in a different way and the action was successfully then after 01 PM. Locomotive Ce 6/8 II # 14270 left the position, where it stand for more then 30 years, and is standing on the tracks again. On the right KIROW crane KRC 1200 of the SBB for up to 150 tons, in the background crane "Kran IX" of Vanomag company, a Gottwald product for up to 130 tons.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.

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