Electric locomotive ÖBB BR1189.06 Crocodile green Ep.IV
When the then Austrian Federal Railways (BBÖ) needed express locomotives for the ramps of the Arlbergbahn at the beginning of the 1920s, they resorted to the model of the proven SBB crocodiles, thus taking on the typical appearance of the two long, flat stems. The first copies were put into service in 1923, followed in 1927 a total of 16 more machines of this series. After connecting Austria to the German Reich in 1938, the Deutsche Reichsbahn described the crocodiles as E89 (1100) and E89.1 (1100.1). After the Second World War, the remaining machines came as ÖBB 1089 and ÖBB1189 to the re-founded Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB). Only in 1979, the locomotives were retired. After the war, some crocodiles were also used in Switzerland.
