HR 99A 'Glentromie' at Aviemore

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 99 'Glentromie' on the scrap line at Aviemore in 1923. It was renumbered by the Highland Railway on three occasions: to 99A in July 1919; back to 99 in September 1919; and finally back to 99A in August 1922. It was withdrawn from service and sold in 1923.
