HR No.147 'Beaufort Castle' about to depart Inverness, 1904

On a wet autumn day in Inverness No.147 'Beaufort Castle' is about to depart with a southbound passenger train.

The locomotive is one of the 'Castle' Class of 4-6-0 express passenger engines. She was built in July 1902 and went on to carry the LMS No.14682 before being withdrawn in January 1943.

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.
