Two 'Type 2' locos on a southbound train at Welsh's Bridge, 1965

Two 'Type 2' locomotives on a southbound train at Welsh's Bridge just outside Inverness.

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.
Following the demise of steam the Type 2s (which later became the 'Class 24 and 26's) became the mainstay of services over Highland lines.
