HR 75 'Breadalbane', July 1922

William Stroudley was replaced as locomotive superintendent on the Highland Railway in 1870 by his chief assistant, David Jones. The first locomotives to be built to one of Jones' designs were the 4-4-0 'Duke' class which worked on express passenger trains. Ten were built by Dübs of Glasgow in 1874 (numbers 60 to 69) and a further seven were produced in Inverness between 1876 and 1888 (numbers 4, 71 to 75, and 84). These later engines are often referred to as 'Lochgorm Bogies'.

This photograph shows HR 75 'Breadalbane' in July 1922. Completed in October 1886, it was the third HR loco to bear that name. It was renumbered 75A in March 1917 before being eventually withdrawn from service in August 1923.
