Hi! :)

Pop some Popcorn, lean back and enjoy this video of the Swiss Crocodile locomotive. The video features both the green prototype filmed in Sweden 2015 and the Märklin model 39562 filmed on a large H0 layout.

Thanks for the video. I was lucky enough to see the Crocodile in the seventies working the yard which was just a few minutes away from where lived. For Swiss modeler the Kroki is what the Big Boy is for their American counterparts.

Nice video and layout.

Question: I know Marklin uses a "stud"-type third rail, but I didn't see how the loco could pick up current while on the turntable. How is this done?
