LMS 15053 in LMS II livery at Dornoch shed, 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 15053 (previously HR 45) outside Dornoch shed in June 1936. It continued in service well into British Rail days, eventually being withdrawn in January 1957. It was the last HR engine in service.
