FD doesn't know the universal sign for Rock'n'Roll? OhMyGod LOL

Edit - the finger(s) sign is commonly used as "it rocks", "heavy metal" and also used as the "Illuminati" sign as I understand.
There is eg a certain Aussie musical ensemble playing both AC & DC where this sign is frequently used by the audience attending their performances....


The other croc catcher took the picture, of course... BigGrin

Too many post to thank them all, so let me say it here, thank you! I am quite envious.

A special loko, unique in all the world. Steam engines, diesels and electrics, once you get a common power source, all seem to come from the same mold. Yes, there are differences between the various types of lokos and steam is a treat to see operate and they remain my favorite type of loko, but there is not a single electric that looks like this electric. It is one of a kind.

Thanks to all placing images here and doing the coverage. It is really good to follow the croc here.
I like all images and specially the ones inside the croc cabin are something I was not expecting and like too much!
Please go on, you are all doing a fantastic job!

The croc 37564 is also 14305, but is blue, not green.
The croc in the set 31100 is a specific commemoration of the trip that is happening to Gävle. In the figure of the croc in the fall new items brochure it seems the croc has 14305 in the body, but the text in english says: "The Märklin name and the item number are in relief on the locomotive's center part." The item number is not the locomotive number, so probably it will not have the 14305 but probably 31100...
Mostly Märklin H0.

I am really enjoying this coverage and naturally would love to be part of it there.
I have 3556 from about 1985 which I have converted with Marklin Sound Decoder, and it runs beautifully !

Hi Miguel,

The remark about the item number is in the description of the Swedish Da, and it's visible in the photo as well. As for the Crocodile, the text mentions the road number as well as the item number. Probably the item number will be on one side, and the road number on the other side of the central part of the locomotive. The text clearly says that it's 14305, and the photo shows the same road number.

Best regards,
Mark

The croc in the set 31100 is a specific commemoration of the trip that is happening to Gävle. In the figure of the croc in the fall new items brochure it seems the croc has 14305 in the body, but the text in english says: "The Märklin name and the item number are in relief on the locomotive's center part." The item number is not the locomotive number, so probably it will not have the 14305 but probably 31100...


Hi Miguel,

The remark about the item number is in the description of the Swedish Da, and it's visible in the photo as well. As for the Crocodile, the text mentions the road number as well as the item number. Probably the item number will be on one side, and the road number on the other side of the central part of the locomotive. The text clearly says that it's 14305, and the photo shows the same road number.

Best regards,
Mark


I had to check my green 39563, seems it is 14.307, close but no Cigar Wink

Eltåg 100 år 12 september 2015

September 12th 2015 - 100 years of electric traction - at the Swedish Railway Museum

The Swedish Railway Museum is located in Gävle, approximately 180 km north of Stockholm. Today two extra trains ran from Stockholm C to Gävle and the museum. Train 95500 pulled by SBB CFF FFS 14305 and 95502 pulled by GC Rc4 1290. 95500 leaving Stockholm at 6h22 and 95502 leaving at 7h54, due to arrive in Gävle at 11h35 and 9h55 respectively.

About one and a half hours drive from where I live, I stopped at Örbyhus and first came the 95502 and soon after the 95500.





The next stop was at Skutskär norra:





The first electric engine I saw at the Museum was this, the prototype of the Swedish Da of Märklin locomotive set 31100:











The Crocodile next to the Swedish giant Dm 1246 + Dm3 1247 + Dm 1248 in LKAB livery:



The front end of DM 1248:



SJ D 109 prototype of Märklin 3170, 3670 and 3171:



Later two of the SBB Historic coaches could be seen next to these locomotives:





Finally, the closest in appearance that a Swedish locomotive can get to a Crocodile, the SJ Mg:

Excellent pictures Per, I believe at least one of the Swedish riveted coaches pulled by the croc was in Ystad about a week ago too... Smile

Obviously, Märklin has sponsored the green Da repaint so the 31100 set is credible as a model too... BigGrin

Was the croc "open for inspection" at the event?


As far as personal planning goes, and the schedules are kept, the 16th in Malmö again and the 19th in Ystad - maybe even pics of it boarding the ferry will come.... BigGrin

Obviously, they were screwed off as a security precaution - they are back on at the 100-year event in Western Pacific's pics... Smile
They probably were in the grey goods wagon, as the lights were before they got mounted in Malmö for the show.

Aha, so you were the one with the camera on the other platform - I wondered if the pics would look good from there due to the fence, but it looks very good. Smile
My Eslöv pics are earlier in this topic...

@Alberto, you started my croc fever since you gave me a tip on Facebook about this trip - Thank you! Smile

@Martin - simply excellent... ThumpUp ThumpUp ThumpUp

The Crocodile left Stockholm today (September 15th) at 13h13 (scheduled departure 13h08). I managed to get a few pictures with my mobile phone (Sony Xperia Z1 Compact) in the rainy weather that characterized Stockholm today. There was quite a large crowd at Stockholm C with cameras and phones taking pictures of the departure.

First though, the latest addition to the collection of the Swedish Railway Museum, SJ Rc1 1007 from 1967 - the first in the series that also has 1010, prototype for Märklin 3043. 1007 is re-painted the way it looked in 1978:



The Crocodile at track 10 at Stockholm C:



The train and here the coaches of the SBB Historic trai seen. Further back in the train are, i believe seven Swedish coaches - I lost count - and at the end SJ D 109 (prototype for Märklin 3170, 3670 and 3171), but nothing of the Swedish part of thr train at the end can be seen due to the curve of the track:



Departure with SBB Ce 6/8III at the front. Later there will be changes due to the fact that Swedish rules stipulate that an engine without functioning ATC (Automatic Train Control) must not be used for more than 200 km per day and not at speeds above 80 km/h, but that is no problem with the Crocodile having a maximum speed of 65 km/h. This means that Rc1 1007 will take the lead later today:



The train is due to arrive at Ängelholm on Wednesday at 22h09. It will be used for some extra train there on Thursday before being made ready for transport via ferry Ystad - Świnoujście, a short stretch through Poland and then via Germany back to Switzerland.
