LMS 15053 at St Rollox Works, October 1948

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 LMS 15053 (previously HR 45) at St Rollox works in Glasgow in October 1948. It continued in service well into British Rail days, eventually being withdrawn in January 1957. It was the last HR engine in service.
