Diesel Crocodiles[edit]

There were some Sulzer-engined diesel Crocodiles built by Les Ateliers Metallurgiques, Nivelles, Belgium, in 1949 for service in Bolivia; seemingly at least one of them still exists. See [1]. From what I can see, these appear to have been true (articulated) Crocodiles. I haven't added this to the article itself because I feel it would need a bit of rewording to encompass non-electric Crocodiles. I doubt there'd be any point in spinning diesel examples off into a separate article, though - were there any others? Grover Snodd (talk) 10:27, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Jackshaft variations[edit]

14270 Ce 6/8II
14305 Ce 6/8III

Can someone please confirm the identify of these two images, particularly the jackshafts and rods, and whether they're Ce / Be and Ce 6/8II or Ce 6/8III. Which is the earlier and later type? ThanksAndy Dingley (talk) 13:21, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

The one in the left picture is ser II with the extra balance counter weight at the far end of each jack shaft, ser III does not have the end counter balance — Preceding unsigned comment added by Paul Matcalfe (talkcontribs) 19:40, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
