Highland Railway, steam engine No. 1

Highland Railway steam engine No. 1, Ben-y-Gloe, at what appears to be Kyle of Lochalsh train station. The Railway Age began in the Highlands in 1855, when the Inverness and Nairn Railway was completed. However, it was not until 1898 that the town had a direct route to the south by way of Carrbridge.

The Highland Railway had its own workshops in Inverness. The Loch Gorm Locomotive Works, built in 1864, produced many steam engines with local names such as 'Clachnacuddin' and 'Strathpeffer'.

Inverness continued to be the headquarters of the Highland Railway until 1923, when the company was merged into the London Midland and Scottish Railway
