Loco scrap heap at Inverness

Before the invention of oxy-acetylene cutting equipment, locomotives were scrapped by dismantling them by hand. This is a photograph of the scrap line at Inverness at about the turn of the 19th Century. The signal box in the left background is Welsh's Bridge box.

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.
