This is the oddest looking steam loco I've ever seen. It appears to have slammed into a wall at full speed. :lol:

CNJ burned anthracite, which required the much larger fire (hence the huge Wooten fire box). They cab was moved to mid boiler to avoid the fire (I believe - off the top of my head, something my father told me forty years ago).

Ahhhh, Camelbacks! So strange and yet so cool. At the Museum of Transportation (where I volunteer), we have not one, but TWO!

The O&W locomotives are cool. One of the more unappreciated railroads of its day, though I don't know much about it. The photos are real gems, for sure.

By the way, baby-faced Baldwins are hideous! What were they thinking?

Wasn't to get away from the fire because the fireman in the conventional location had to deal with it. You'll notice the firebox was so wide there would have been no room to situate the cab in a position to see around it. Therefore the engineer perched on the side of the boiler with the side rods whirring about just below his feet while the fireman shuffled about in the wind.
