HR 94 'Strathtay' on the turntable at Inverness

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 ownership in 1923.



This photograph shows HR 94 'Strathtay' on the turntable at Inverness. It was renumbered by the Highland Railway twice: to 94A in April 1919 and back to 94 in September of that year. It passed to the LMS and was to be numbered 14273 but this number was never assigned. It was withdrawn from service in March 1925.
