Hayes Camel Locomotive by SteamRailwayCompany Hayes Camel Locomotive by SteamRailwayCompany
This is perhaps the only surviving locomotive of it's type; the Hayes camel locomotive. It was a predecessor to the better known anthracite burning steam engines such as on the Philadelphia & Reading. No. 305 4-6-0 has also been lovingly restored to a beautiful condition, posed neatly inside the classic roundhouse of one of the most distinct railroad museums in the country.

No Winans Camels have survived.  The Camel in the B&O museum is a Hayes Camel.  The Winans Camels were all originally 0-8-0 configuration, although the PRR altered theirs into a 4-6-0 configuration.  None of these have survived either.  The Hayes Camels were built after the Winans Camels, in a 4-6-0 configuration.

Some people refer to these old engines as "camelbacks" but that is technically incorrect.  The first Winans locomotive of the type was named "Camel" thus setting the name for the classification of engine, in the same way that the very first Consolidation locomotive was named "Consolidation".

The Winans camels came in three basic variations: short medium and long fireboxes.  The smokestacks were altered over the decades, and some of the later Winans Camels had smokestacks similar to the one on this Hayes Camel.

A second Hayes Camel exists in the St.Joseph Missouri locomotive museum.

Now I could be wrong about this, but I don't think that this was a true Winans Camel. Primarily because of a lack of a FRIGGING MASSIVE STEAM DOME (in capitals for dramatic effect) behind the stack. That and the Camels were 0-8-0 type locomotives. Although these 4-6-0 "Camels" were (I think) designed by Mr. Winans.
