LMS 14767 'Clan Mackinnon' at Aviemore, June 1948

The last class of locomotive built for the Highland Railway was the 'Clan' class of 4-6-0 passenger engines. Designed by Christopher Cumming, the first four (numbered 49, 51, 52 & 53) were delivered in 1919 and four more (numbered 54 to 57) were delivered in 1921. Built by Hawthorn Leslie & Co. in Newcastle, all members of the class survived into LMS ownership but only one was still working after the formation of British Railways.

This photograph shows LMS 14767 'Clan Mackinnon' (formerly HR 55) at Aviemore in June 1948. It continued in service until being withdrawn in February 1950, making it the only member of the class to survive into British Railways days.
