HR 55 'Clan Mackinnon' with 57 'Clan Cameron' at Perth

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 two 'Clan' class locos at Perth. On the right of the picture is HR 55 'Clan Mackinnon'. It was numbered 14767 by the LMS and continued in service until being withdrawn February 1950. It was the only member of the class to survive into British Railways days. On the left is HR 57 'Clan Cameron'. It was numbered 14769 by the LMS and continued in service until being withdrawn October 1943.
