54482 on the roundhouse turntable, Inverness

Ex-Caledonian Railway '72 Class' 54482 on the Inverness roundhouse turntable.

54482 was built by the Caledonian Railway in July 1920 as CR No.77. She became LMS No. 14482 and then 54482. She ended her days as an Aviemore based engine and was withdrawn in February 1962.

A roundhouse is an engine shed laid out as an arc, with all tracks leading from a central turntable. With 31 stalls Inverness was a particularly fine example.

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.
