Black and white steam locomotive photo of a Camelback engineer and his engine. Taken at the CNJ Communipaw rail yard, mid 1930's, at a time when access was easy for photographers like my Dad. This particular type of engine was unique to the Central RR of New Jersey and just a few other railroads. Building new ones was outlawed around the time of WWI but those remaining were allowed to operate. Two main reasons for the restriction were lack of communication between the engineer and the fireman (he was at the back of the engine) and mechanical failure of  the side rods, at speed, would sheer off the cab and the engineer with it.
