HR 35 'Isla Bank' at Luncarty

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 35 'Isla Bank' at Luncarty. Originally named 'Kingsmills', it was rebuilt as a 2-4-0 in July 1892 and renamed 'Isla Bank' in 1889. It had the longest life of the all the Glenbarry class locomotives, surviving until just after the grouping before being withdrawn in August 1923. It had been renumbered HR 35A in 1911 but didn't receive an LMS number.
