I've just come across this thread and it reminded me of a photo in a book I have published by Odhams Press in the 1930s called "The Pageant of the Century" which is basically a pictorial history of the years 1900 to 1933. Included in the photos for 1904 is one captioned "Camel of the Railway" reproduced courtesy of the Metropolitan Railway, showing a Camel type loco posed above ground for the photographer with a rake of coaches and bearing a large Harrow destination sign. The accompanying text says "These (trains on the suburban line) were drawn from Baker Street to Harrow-on-the-Hill by an electric locomotive of the "Camel" type, known as a "Beetle" to the boys of the period......". I'm afraid it doesn't say who the loco manufacturer was.
