About camelback 4-2-2 by Thomas Kniffin

This locomotive is based off of a single picture of a camelback locomotive. Camelbacks were steam engines built with the cab astride the boiler. they were built from around 1877 to 1920 and were designed with extra-large fireboxes to burn anthracite waste. I was only able to fine one photograph of the engine, so I used styles from other camelbacks to design things like the tender.
