HR 96 "Glentilt"

The 'Strath' class of 4-4-0 passenger locomotives were built for the Highland Railway by Neilson Reid & Co. of Glasgow in 1892. They were built to the design of David Jones, the company's locomotive superintendent, and were similar in design to his other locomotives, with the exception of having larger boilers. The twelve locomotives were numbered 89 to 100 and six of them passed into LMS (London Midland & Scottish Railway) ownership in 1923.

This photograph shows HR 96 'Glentilt'. It was renumbered by the Highland Railway on three occasions: to 96A in April 1919; back to 96 in September of that year and to 96A once again in May 1922. It was withdrawn from service and sold 1923.
