LMS 15051 in LMS I livery on the turntable at Inverness

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 15051 (previously HR 25 'Strathpeffer') on the turntable at Inverness. It continued in service well into British Rail days, eventually being withdrawn in August 1956. Behind it is LMS 16380 (previously HR 22), a 'Lochgorm' tank.
