HR 70A at Inverness shed, July 1922

The 'Skye Bogie' class of locomotive were designed for the Highland Railway by its chief locomotive superintendent David Jones. They were built primarily to work on the Dingwall and Skye line. Nine were built at the company's Lochgorm Works in Inverness between 1882 and 1901. The last four were overseen by Jones' replacement, Peter Drummond, who made some alterations to the original design. None of the Skye Bogies were given names and all transferred to the LMS in 1923.

This photograph shows HR 70A at Inverness shed in July 1922. It was the first of the class to be built, in May 1882, and originally carried the number 70. It was renumbered twice, to 70A in December 1912 and 67 in February 1923. After the grouping it became LMS 14277 and continued in service until being withdrawn in December 1929.
