Main track Austrian crocodile:
The Swiss Ce 6/8 III was based on its predecessor the Ce 6/8 II, and was built by the SLM (Schweizerische Locomotiv- und Maschinenfabrik) and the MFO (Machinen Fabrik Oerlikon). The mechanical part of the Ce 6/8 III was manufactured by the SLM and the electrical part by the MFO. The locomotive was nicknamed "Crocodile" or "Gotthard Crocodile". The locomotive was developed for freight transport on steep slopes such as the Gotthard bahn. A total of 18 locomotives of the Ce 6/8 III series were built, of which 9 were put into service in 1926 and 9 in 1927.

The Ce6/8 III locomotives were immediately used on the Gotthardbahn. The maximum speed was around 65 Km/h. In April 1977 the last Ce 6/8 III was taken out of service. A number of these crocodiles have been preserved, and some are still operational and used on special trips.

With 4 engines and a power of 1810 kW, and the inclined rod drive, these locomotives were allowed for 65 km/h. After a conversion of the engines in 1953, the max. speed was increased to 75 km/h. The type designation then changed to Be 6/8 III. The locomotives were now also painted green.

Main track German crocodile:
E 94 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn (DRB), designed by AEG and in its operating condition in the early 1940s. The E 94, also known as "Crocodile" or "Eisenschwein" due to its shape, appeared in 1940 and was intended for heavy freight trains and passenger transport. Several more were built after the war, which together with the older E 94s were used in East and West Germany and Austria until the 1990s.

The BR194/E94, also known as the "German Crocodile", was built in the period 1940-1945 by the companies AEG, SSW and Kraus-Maffei. The BR194/E94s were specially built for heavy freight transport, but were also regularly used for passenger trains. Until 1945 146 of these locomotives were delivered. The locomotives reached a top speed of about 90 to 100 km/h. (When pulling 2,000 tons, the locomotive still reached a speed of about 85 km/h). After the 2nd World War, a few more locomotives were delivered and the locomotives of the E94 were divided between east and west Germany and Austria. Most locomotives went to the DB. The DR had 30 units on file and the Austrian ÖBB 44 units. In the period 1954-1956 a series of 43 E94 locomotives was built and delivered. In the 1960s the roofs were extended and the modified locomotives continued as E194. The reason for extending it was the fact that the drivers experienced a lot of nuisance from the sun. In 1988 the last BR 194/E94 was withdrawn from service in the DB, in 1991 the last in the GDR, and in 1995 the last in the ÖBB (Rh 1020).
