BR 55051 inside Helmsdale shed, 1954

In 1905/06 the Highland Railway built four 0-4-4 tank engines to work on its various small branch lines. Numbered 25, 40, 45 and 46, they were the last locomotives to be built at the company's Lochgorm works in Inverness. Two of the class survived well into the days of British Railways.

This photograph shows BR 55051 (previously HR 25 'Strathpeffer') inside Helmsdale shed in 1954. It continued in service until being withdrawn in August 1956.
