I have a couple of Loks and cars in “Spur 1” that I bought in 1981 (!) when I was in Germany. I have always wanted a Krokodil Lok. There are usually some in EBAY but cost and shipment to the US are both high. I don’t have anything digital and don’t understand what I’d need to use a digital set and in any case, I would only set up track maybe one, two times a year, I lack the space to dedicate to an all-year set up. Does anyone know if used Spur 1 Loks are available in the US? Can anyone recommend a Krokodil that would fit my limited use plans? I like the ones with two Pantographs, not the Switcher type with just one and I need one that would work on my old 30 Amp transformer with alternating current.

have you checked ebay or craigslist for one?

A green one or a brown one at realistic looking prices on eBay.com.

Sorry I failed to thank KIWIALAN for his helpful suggestion. I am now torturing myself as I search around my modest digs, under carpets, in sofa cushions (!) for enough to buy one of the Krokodil you suggested. Seriously, I am sorely tempted and I can see that the price is actually lower than many less conveniently available in Europe but the cost is a lot for me and I am still thinking. Thanks for your help since without it, I wouldn’t have even been in the game.
