LMS 15051 outside Lybster shed

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') outside Lybster shed. It continued in service well into British Rail days, eventually being withdrawn in August 1956.
