HR 1 'Raigmore'

A photograph of HR No.1 'Raigmore', post-1869

This locomotive was built for the Inverness & Nairn Railway by Hawthorns of Leith in October 1855 and had a 2-2-2 wheel arrangement. It was transferred to the newly-formed Highland Railway in 1865. The HR rebuilt it in 1869 with a 2-4-0 wheel arrangement and worked it until 1873.

It was named 'Raigmore' after Raigmore Estate, which belonged to Eneas W MacKintosh, one of the directors of the Inverness & Nairn.
