Connecticut Antique Machinery Association. CAMA's pride and joy is Hawaii #5. This 1925 Baldwin first saw service for the Hawaii Railway Co. and was used to haul sugar cane from the fields to the mill, as well as seeing some passenger service. After being taken out of service, #5 was eventually sold, making it's way back to the mainland. There, she received a new ASME boiler. Richard May from California eventually purchased #5, and in 1999, did a thorough mechanical and cosmetic restoration. Through his kind auspices, this fine locomotive went to CAMA in Kent, Connecticut on long term loan. #5 is steamed up and run on the tracks every year at the Fall Festival. The purchase of Hawaii Railway #5 was completed just prior to the end of the 2010 calendar year. This information was taken from the CAMA website at: http://www.ctamachinery.com.
