HR 55 'Invergordon'

Between September 1863 and October 1864, the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction Railway introduced 18 Glenbarry class locomotives. These were 2-2-2s intended primarily for passenger traffic. They were numbered 28 to 35 and 46 to 55.

This photograph shows HR 55 'Invergordon'. Originally named 'Cluny', it was rebuilt as a 2-4-0 in September 1874 and renamed 'Sutherland', becoming the third HR loco to bear that name. A further change of name, to 'Invergordon', occurred in 1884. It was withdrawn from service and sold in 1906.
