HR 9 'Ben Rinnes' entering Muir of Ord

This photograph shows HR 9 'Ben Rinnes' entering Muir of Ord.

The locomotive was one of the class of 4-4-0 passenger locomotives known collectively as the Small Bens. It was built at the Highland's own Lochgorm works in Inverness in July 1899. It was numbered 14405 by the LMS and continued in service until being withdrawn in September 1944.

On 11 June 1862 the Inverness and Ross-shire Railway opened their line between Inverness and Dingwall. It included a station at the village of Tarradale but the company decided to name it after the nearby cattle tryst (market), Muir of Ord. Eventually the name Muir of Ord was applied to the surrounding area.
