To be honest this is my 6th version of the german crocodil. Now she shares the drivetrain with her swiss sister. Each truck is powered by a PF-L-motor. All axles are driven. The third and fourth axle are blind. Therefore the trucks are completly new. I also worked on the fronts of the noses and the shape the roof. I hope, you like the result! Greetings from Hannover, Simon!

So cool, awesome job!!

Will it finally do away with the L-sized wheels? I have your bricks-on-rails version of the E94 here and while it looks great on its own, it looks very weird right next to your E17, E18 and E19 (which are just the most mindbogglingly awesome "Altbau Elektrolokomotiven"-brick-models ever). Representing the 1250 mm wheels of the E94 with L-wheels looks just out of scale when put next to the 1600 mm wheels of the E17/8/9 which are represented by M-wheels.

Thx, Black Knight!

You are right concerning the wheel size issue but please note the following facts:

The E94 on bricks-on-rails is NOT my design. It was designed by the owner of the site, Martin. It is one of his masterpieces.

My first E94 had S-wheels, that`s why later on I choose M-sized wheels for the E17, E18 and E19.

I do not scale. Most important for me is the balance between functionality and recognition factor.

Oh, then I am terribly sorry for mixing up your E94 and Martins! But if the new E91 is yours: That one has L-wheels, too! =) (btw. the English description in the shop is lacking the (c) Dr. Snotson description)

Anyway: Great work. I would love it even more if it would use M- or S-wheels for it would look sooooo much better right next to any steamer or your E19. :wub:
