LMS 15054 in LMS II livery at Wick on the Lybster train, June 1936

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 15054 (previously HR 46) on the Lybster train at Wick in June 1936. It continued in service until being withdrawn in October 1945.
