The camel back series locomotive featured a unique design where the cab was built on the middle of the locomotive to allow the engineer to see better. They also came equipped with a larger fire box to burn lower quality coal. This engine was designed to pull both freight and passenger services for the railroads they operated on.
The model was designed to be as detailed as possible to best represent what the camel back locomotive was like. This model in particular is based off of Central Railroad 774. The engine has working side rods, along with a plentiful amount of detail to get the full look of the locomotive. It is motorized and power functions is included. The motor is housed between the cab and fire box, while the sensor and battery box are in the tender.
