LMS 14420 'Ben a'Chait' on train at Georgemas, July 1926

LMS 14420 'Ben a'Chait' on an up train at Georgemas in July 1926.

14420 (formerly HR 65) was part of the Highland Railway's 'Big Ben' class of 4-4-0 locomotives. These were very similar in design to the previous 'Ben' class but had larger boilers, hence their being referred to now as the 'Big Bens' and their predecessors as 'Small Bens'. It was built by the North British Locomotive Company in Glasgow and delivered in May 1908. For the first year of its life it carried the number 68. It continued in service until being withdrawn in April 1934.
