Train standing at Dornoch station.

This photograph shows a train waiting to depart from Dornoch for The Mound, hauled by an ex-Highland Railway Passenger Tank, No. 15054. The train consists of a mixture of coaches; the third one is an ex-Midland Railway clerestory brake coach.

Dornoch was the terminus of a branch line from The Mound, opened as the Dornoch Light Railway on 2 June 1902. It was closed to all traffic on 13 June 1960.

The Passenger Tank class consisted of four 0-4-4 tanks built in 1905-06 for branch line duties. Two of the class survived until the mid-1950s working on the Dornoch branch, the last Highland Railway locomotives in service.
