"Crocodiles". The Swiss mountain locomotives that pulled heavy freight trains over the Gotthard grades are known as "Crocodiles". The design (hoods mounted for articulation, stretched out shape) and the color green gave them their name. These units "snaked" like a reptile through the curves when negotiating turnout combinations and S curves. "Six-axle standard gauge locomotive, only for large curves, faithful reproduction of the 'Crocodile Locomotive' ?" was the description in the Märklin catalog of 1933/34 for the reproduction of the latest locomotive from Switzerland. The design and the pulling power of the original locomotive impressed people so much at that time, that it became a synonym for progress and power. A legend that was part of Märklin's history from that point on. This legendary locomotive was offered in all of Märklin's scales. First in 1 Gauge and 0 Gauge, then in H0, and even in Mini-Club Z Gauge. It was the top product offered everywhere and thus became the unofficial "heraldic animal" of Märklin.

This Crocodile double set can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 22956.

The Swiss Railways (SBB) recognized before World War I the advantages of electric railroad operation. In November of 1913 the decision was reached to electrify the Gotthard line between Erstfeld and Bellinzona. The rising cost of coal and the lack of coal during the following war years confirmed the correctness of this decision and contributed to the acceleration of electrification at the end of the war. Electrification of the Gotthard grades as well as the Gotthard tunnel was completed by December 12, 1920. The SBB had to come up with a brand new locomotive for freight trains, because there was hardly any data available for such a mountain locomotive. The builders Maschinen-Fabrik Oerlikon (MFO) and Schweizerische Lokomotiv- und Maschinenfabrik Winterthur (SLM) suggested a 2-6-6-2 locomotive with long hoods and two powered trucks. "The" Gotthard was born with this "Crocodile" as it was quickly named. Between 1919 and 1922 a total of 33 locomotives were delivered as Ce 6/8II 14251-14283 that were destined to dominate heavy freight service on the Gotthard. The two powered truck frames, each with three powered axles and a Bissel pilot truck, were connected by a close coupling. A short locomotive body was enthroned between the two powered truck frames which gave the locomotive marvelous maneuverability on curves. The locomotive body on the Ce 6/8II measured just 6,020 mm / 19 feet 9 inches with the total length of the locomotive at 19,460 mm / 63 feet 10-5/16 inches. This would be the only road engine with such a short locomotive body on the SBB. The drive system was done with two traction motors per powered truck via countershaft, jackshaft, triangular rods, and side rods to the driving axles. Between 1942 and 1947 thirteen of these units were equipped with new, more powerful traction motors at the same time that the maximum speed was raised from 65 to 75 km/h / 41 to 47 mph. The performance rose accordingly from 1,650 to 2,700 kilowatts / 2,212 to 3,619 horsepower and the modified locomotives were given the class designation Be 6/8II with the road numbers 13251-13259, 13261 and 13263-13265. The first of the original Ce 6/8II to be retired was from 1965 on. At the same time eleven units began to be converted for use at large switch yards, whereby the following changes were done: installation of switching radio, removal of one pantograph, and installation of new platform railings in front of the hoods. These "switcher crocodiles" were in service the longest and ran well into 1986. A total of seven Ce/Be 6/8II were preserved as famous and popular locomotives: SBB Historic (14253), the Swiss Transportation Museum in Lucerne (13254), the South Railroad Museum in Mürzzuschlag, Austria (13257), the Technology Museum of Speyer (14267), Club del San Gottardo (14276), and the Auto and Technology Museum in Sinsheim (14282).

This "Crocodile" can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 22957.

The Ore Railroad Luleå Gällivare Kiruna Narvik As early as the mid 18th century, iron ore was being dug in the area around the north Swedish cities of Gällivare and Kiruna and was extremely sought after all over the world because of its high iron content. Starting in 1860, the companies involved in mining the ore were looking for new ways to ensure efficient transport of their ore to the harbors of Luleå in Sweden and Narvik in Norway. Indeed, the railroad seemed "the" suitable means of transport, but initially large investments had to be made. All the same, in 1888 the 202 kilometer / 126 mile long route Gällivare ? Luleå was placed into operation. Several of the firms involved in the construction of the railroad had gone bankrupt in the meantime and so the government stepped in. On October 24, 1890, the state-owned Luossavaara Kirunavaara Aktiebolag (LKAB) was established which took the finished and the still to be constructed ore railroad under its wing. The route was extended from Gällivare to Kiruna by 1899. Due to the long transport route to Luleå and the icing up of the harbor in the winter, this was not a satisfactory solution for the long term. On September 26, 1902 the gap was closed with "fireworks and artillery shells" and there were extensive celebrations. Through impassable, almost hostile territory the route now ran 269 kilometers / 168 miles from Gällivare to Narvik. The section from Riksgränsen on the back of the Caledonian mountain chain to Narvik on the Ofot Fjord was a special challenge: Here an elevation difference of 520 meters / 1,706 feet along steep mountainsides had to be overcome with a section of rail line 40 kilometers / 25 miles in length. The first ore train from Gällivare to Narvik ran on November 13, 1902. From November 24, 1902 on the Norwegian and Swedish State Railways finally began regular service with three ore trains per day. The official opening by the Swedish King Oscar II took place on July 14, 1903. Today this ore line combines several superlatives: It runs from Luleå in Sweden on the Gulf of Bothnia in a northwesterly direction to the iron ore mine areas of Gällivare and Kiruna above the Arctic Circle and further to the Norwegian harbor of Narvik. It is the most northerly route linked to the rest of the European rail network. In addition, the station at Narvik at 68°26' latitude north is the most northerly rail terminal that can be reached in Western Europe for passenger service. As early as 1911 the increasing transport demands required electrification of the Swedish section of the line. Ten years later the Norwegian State Railways also followed suit and from 1922 on electric locomotives were hauling the 1,900 ton heavy ore trains continuously. World War II caused a great deal of destruction with the heavy battles around Narvik. Yet, after the end of the war reconstruction commenced immediately. With the rebuilding of loading facilities, new ore transport cars, and more powerful locomotives came the great period of the class Dm 3 side rod electric locomotives from the end of the Sixties on. These were three close-coupled locomotives electrically linked to one another. Each of the three parts had four coupled driving axles. With a total output of 7,200 kilowatts / 9, 655 horsepower, and a total length of 35.25 meters / 115 feet 8 inches they were able to move 5,400 ton heavy ore trains. In 1996, LKAB took over handling the ore traffic including transport. In addition to placing new ore cars into service, it also initially purchased from Adtranz nine twelve-axle double locomotives (IORE) that took over operations in succession starting at the end of 2000. The IORE units beat the Dm3 units in use by far with a performance of 10,800 kilowatts / 14,483 horsepower, a total weight of 360 tons, and a length of 45.8 meters / 150 feet 3 inches. Ore trains with an impressive 7,800 ton hauling capacity are pulled today with these new locomotives. Another eight IORE double locomotives have been ordered in the meantime, the last of them to be delivered starting in May of 2013. This means the final departure for the former kings of the ore line, the three-part class Dm3 side rod electric locomotives.

The ore cars to go with this locomotive can be found in two sets, each with 6 cars and different car numbers, in the Märklin H0 assortment under item numbers 46370 and 46371. Two ore car sets with other different car numbers can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item numbers 24237 and 24238.

This ore locomotive can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 22273.
