HR 24

In 1903/04 the Highland Railway built three powerful 0-6-0 tank engines at its Lochgorm works in Inverness. Numbered 22, 23 and 24 they were used for shunting duties. The boilers and wheels were taken from older locomotives that had been scrapped and this led to the engines being referred to as 'Scrap Tanks'.

This photograph shows HR 24. It was numbered 16382 by the LMS and continued in service until being withdrawn in December 1930.
