HR 38 on a train near Inverness

In 1864 the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction railway received ten '36' class locomotives from Sharp, Stewart & Co. These were 2-4-0s which were very similar in design to the rebuilt 'Glenbarries'. Numbered 36 to 45, all were rebuilt between 1876 and 1889 with larger cylinders and driving wheels, amongst other things. All were given names by the 'I & AJR' but had these removed at some stage before being withdrawn.

This photograph shows HR 38. It was rebuilt in August 1882 and continued in service until being withdrawn and sold in September 1902. It carried the name 'Kincraig'.
