Probably HR 149 / LMS 14684 'Duncraig Castle'

The third and final batch of 'Castle' class express passenger locomotives was introduced by the Highland Railway in the spring of 1917. Three engines were built by the North British Locomotive Co. Numbered 50, 58 and 59 they differed from the previous batches by having larger driving wheels, slightly longer boilers and six-wheeled tenders. All passed into LMS ownership and all had been withdrawn before nationalisation in 1948.

We believe this photograph shows LMS 14684 'Duncraig Castle' (formerly HR 149). It was withdrawn from service in January 1940.
