HR 74 'Durn' at Wick, March 1924

The first new class of locomotive designed for the Highland Railway by Christopher Cumming was a powerful 4-4-0 passenger engine. Known as the 'No. 73'class, two were built by Hawthorn Leslie in 1916. They were numbered in 73 and 74 and both passed into LMS ownership in 1923.

This photograph shows HR 74 'Durn' at Wick in March 1924. It was the second Highland Railway loco to bear that name. Numbered 14523 by the LMS, it continued in service until being withdrawn from service in April 1936.
