No.30 'Prince' on Up train at Dunkeld, c1892

Locomotive No. 30 'Prince' on the up train (i.e. southbound) platform at Dunkeld.

Dunkeld (originally Birnam) was opened on 7 April 1856. 24 kilometres north of Perth it was the temporary terminus for seven years until the line was extended to Pitlochry. 'Prince' was built in 1863 as a 2-2-2 and rebuilt as the 2-4-0 shown in the photograph in 1891. 'Prince' was withdrawn in 1893.

The Perth & Dunkeld Railway obtained its Act of Parliament on 10 July 1854 for a line between Stanley Junction and Birnam, on the opposite side of the Tay to Dunkeld. The station was first served by the Scottish Midland Railway and then the Scottish North Eastern Railway before becoming part of the Highland Railway.
