I have a table of SBB Ae 3/6 II locos, with a column for revision dates here: http://www.teigfam.net/oyvind/home/models/046-sbb-ae-3_6-ii-h0-scale/#Table_id1.

If anybody as interested as me to see that column filled, and would have the odd missing loco, then why not send me your throug-the-magnifying-glass discoveries?

The date as well as the position ("left" or "right") on the loco would be perfect! I would of acknowledge this in the Acknowledgements chapter.

Also, anything else of interest, or even error reports would be welcome!

I've never gone that far with my Ae 3/6's I have 3 of them, 3151, 3167, 3351, had a 3169 (Swiss export model) but sold it many years ago.

I would think the earlier models, e.g. Pantographs have been the simpler version and other details have been left off or out.
your models from later productions, e.g. 37 series show prototypical pantos, most probably the doors have been permanently closed off (e.g. Ae 6/8=Crocodile), the step has been removed, the plague underneath the road number is by whom the loco was manufactured and I'll have a look the difference between these plagues from one model to another.

Koll uses his own numbering scheme with dots. He invents the numbers behind the dot to identify variations Märklin sold under the same number (e.g. with #3000 or #3021). He also invents numbers (typically .10 or .20) for (starter) set locos - these loco numbers can be rather odd at times (huge differences between the .1 and the .10 entry).
Märklin uses dashes when a set contains individually marked boxes.

If I was you, I would use dashes for the 37512 double set and dots for the 3xxx locos that have been made in variations.

"N" in the Märklin catalogue means new (as you guessed).
