HR 79 at Hawthorn Leslie, October 1919

In 1918 the Highland Railway took delivery of four 4-6-0 tender locomotives. These were essentially an updated version of the Jones 'Big Goods' class of 1894. A further batch of four was delivered the following year. All were built by Hawthorn Leslie in Newcastle upon Tyne. Numbered 75 to 82, they were known collectively as the 'Superheated Goods'. All but two of the class lasted into British Rail days.

This photograph shows HR 79 at Hawthorn Leslie's yard at Newcastle in October 1919. It was numbered 17954 by LMS and continued in service until October 1952.
