Turntable in the Roundhouse at Inverness Station

A view of the turntable in the roundhouse, looking towards the arch with No.62 'Ben a' Chaoruinn' on shed in stall 31.

'Ben a' Chaoruinn' was one of the 'Big Ben' class of 4-4-0 locomotives built to work the Inverness to Wick 'Far North Line'. She was built in May 1909 as HR No,62 and became LMS No.14422 before being withdrawn in March 1937.

The Inverness & Nairn Railway first opened a station in Inverness on 7 November 1855 and it developed to become the railway centre of the Highlands with routes radiating south to Perth and beyond; east to Aberdeen, west to Kyle of Lochalsh and north to Wick. It is still open.
