A Super-Heated Goods locomotive entering Muir of Ord

This photograph shows one of Highland Railway's 4-6-0 'Super Heated Goods' locomotives. Eight were built by Hawthorn Leslie in Newcastle upon Tyne between 1918 and 1919.

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.
