LMS 14763 'Clan Fraser' on the turntable at Balornock

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 14763 'Clan Fraser' (formerly HR 51) on the turntable at Balornock. It continued in service until being withdrawn in August 1944.
