Looking up some videos on Crocodile trains for another project im working on, I came across the video for Der Koloss - or Big Boy... one of three made and still running around the Swiss Network (apparently). So a small challenge for anyone (I would love to do it - but have really no time).

So the challenge would be for someone to design a PF or 12V equivalent of the A/E 8/14 of the SBB railroads. Warning: Heavy use of Dark Green plates could make this quite expensive. Wheels could also be from Big Ben... (and just for fun!)

Of course - hut I thought this has the most power. Crocodile are so "last year". Actually because of the Alps, there are some interesting crocodiles in Swiss railroads; and well as shorter versions for the Austrian friends; and many other heavy duty haulers. A nice one is 12320 which was having a 'fitness test' in Winterthur a couple of weeks back.
