Dear Editors:
Of course the vehicle is not complete visible due to the fact, that the Loco was not moved for more than a century and therefore the plants grew all around.

If only "high glossy" pictures of trains are welcome, then this one is definitely not worth to display, but it belongs to the history of this unique vehicle and the fact, that it was almost lost.

I'm getting slowly fed up with comments like "bad framing/cropping", especially as nobody was able to tell me, what's exactly behind this comment and you don't know the situation on which I took the actual picture.

The story behind:
1977, the 182 was withdrawn from the service and on display in the swiss transportation museum in Luzern until November 1978. The Loco returned to Landquart and was parked until 1984. It was the sold to a private person and parked in Saint-Georges-de-Commiers at the chemin de fer de la Mure. The 182 never belonged to SGLMG, therefore the company did not see any need to protect the Loco. During the outdoor stay until 1999, the Loco was heavily damaged and was believed to be scrapped. In 1999, a few men (private and RhB staff) organised the transport back to Switzerland (Landquart). During the next ten years, the 182 did undergo a long and intensive overhaul. On May 28th, 2010, the Loco moved for the firsat time by own power and since June 2010, it is now part of the historical fleet.

A very detailed history about the complete Bernina Branch of the RhB can be found here (sorry, only german):

The Bernina Crocodile was undergoing some maintenance in Landquart and was today transferred back to the Bernina Line with another oldie. The picture was taken on the Solis bridge, unfortunately under bad weather conditions - little rain further back in the valley, therefore not the best light

I was not shure about uploading the picture, but when the Bernina crocodile showed up in Landquart for maintenance, I deceided pro.
On Saturday, the 9th of June, 2018, there will be the largest display of historical trains on RhB ever. It will start approx 1600 in the area of Pontresina and really all rolling stock will be on display and running.
Therefore all historical material is undergoing a maintenance. The 182 was ordered to Landquart for some reasons. Remember, RhB operates on two different power systems. Bernina with 1500 VDC, the mainlines with 11.5 kVAC. Therefore the Bernina crocodile needed to be towed to Landquart.
