HR 49 'Helmsdale' at Inverness, 1898

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 49 'Helmsdale'. Originally named 'Belladrum', it was rebuilt as a 2-4-0 in April 1879 and renamed 'Helmsdale', becoming the second HR loco to bear that name. It was withdrawn from service and sold in July 1899.
