Train Line Confirms Production of “Bernina Krokodil”

In 2022, Train Line announced several new items for the Rhaetian Railway (RhB), with the “Bernina Krokodil” electric locomotive being one of them. At the time, Train Line said the Krokodil would only be produced when the market showed enough interest, while all other 2022 New Items were already confirmed for production.

Train Line has now confirmed they will produce the Bernina Krokodil. Design and construction will start in Summer 2023, production is planned for 2024.

Train Line Announces 2022 Summer New Items

Train Line announced their Summer New Items for 2022. While the focus of their 2022 New Items was on Swiss RhB narrow gauge, the 2022 Summer New Items are focused on the historic HSB narrow gauge railway.

Highlight is the “Salonwagen”, and an additional passenger car to be part of the Harz “Traditionszug”. Both cars would match well with Train Line’s own HSB locomotives, as well as LGB’s recently delivered Harz T 3 railcar.
