HR 49 'Clan Campbell' on the down pass leaving Blair Atholl

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 HR 49 'Clan Campbell' leaving Blair Atholl on the down pass. It was numbered 14762 by the LMS and continued in service until being withdrawn June 1947.
