HR 25 'Strathpeffer' at Strathpeffer

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 HR 25 'Strathpeffer' at Strathpeffer station. It was the third of the company's locomotives to bear that name. Numbered 15051 by the LMS and continued in service well into British Rail days, eventually being withdrawn in August 1956.
