I recently purchased a camel back or mid-cab 4 6 0 Bachmann, which was battery powered. the locomotive was used and I bought it on Ebay.  The previous owner must have done some custom work on it and painted it black. My problem is that I cant find any pictures of it nor any reference to it in Bachmann catalogs. Does anyone have any knowlege about a G scale Bachmann camel back?

Jake:

What you have might be made from Bachmann parts, but I don't think B'mann ever made a LS camelback locomotive.

I'm certain LocoBill will soon give us the definitive answer.

Happy RRing,

Jerry

Hi Jake:

 Your camel back is someones one of a kind kit-bash of the original RC Big Hauler. They show up on EBAY every now and then. There's one on there now.

Thanks for Your Help everybody. After a close inspection I can see where the front of the boiler was changed.
