HR 29 'Forres' at Inverness

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. All except HR 32 were eventually rebuilt as 2-4-0s.

This photograph shows HR 29 at Inverness. It was one of only two of the Glenbarry class built by Hawthorns of Leith. Originally named 'Highlander', it was rebuilt as a 2-4-0 in August 1871 and renamed 'Forres' in May 1879, becoming the second HR loco to bear that name. It was withdrawn in 1898.
