HR 100 'Glenbruar' inside Kyle shed, August 1906

The 'Strath' class of 4-4-0 passenger locomotives were built for the Highland Railway by Neilson Reid & Co. of Glasgow in 1892. They were built to the design of David Jones, the company's locomotive superintendent, and were similar in design to his other locomotives, with the exception of having larger boilers. The twelve locomotives were numbered 89 to 100 and six of them passed into LMS ownership in 1923.

This photograph shows HR 100 'Glenbruar' inside Kyle shed. It was renumbered 100A in July 1919 but reverted to 100 in September of that year. It was one of the class to pass into LMS ownership and was numbered 14276 by the new company. It was withdrawn from service in February 1930.
