International Prototype Models - What You've Got and What's New Edit: I just realized that "International" better conveys my intent for the thread than "Foreign." We seem to have been having fun on the "Why are Bullet Trains Taboo" thread and have taken it in some interesting directions. As much as I love "The Q," I also love finding cool models of any prototype. I was going to say "Japanese Prototype Models" but then I realized, I have some pretty cool European prototype models, too. I'd like to hear what everyone else enjoys and any tips they've learned. I'll start off with my '70s Arnold model of the Swiss SBB Ce 6/8 "Crocodile." I love the drive with the side rods of the prototype. With a die cast shell and brass gears, the model is built to last and is a fairly smooth runner but I have no idea how conversion to DCC is going to work. I don't have a photo of mine so I borrowed this photo.
