HR 42

In 1864 the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction railway received ten '36' class locomotives from Sharp, Stewart & Co. These were 2-4-0s which were very similar in design to the rebuilt 'Glenbarries'. Numbered 36 to 45, all were rebuilt between 1876 and 1889 with larger cylinders and driving wheels, amongst other things. All were given names by the 'I & AJR' but had these removed at some stage before being withdrawn.

This photograph shows HR 42. It was rebuilt in February 1883 and continued in service until being withdrawn in 1923. It had been named 'Lentran' and was to be renumbered three times - as 42A in January 1912; 37 in October 1915; and, finally, 37A in April 1918.
