HR 80 on a goods train at an unidentified location

HR 80 on a goods train at an unidentified location. It is on a long straight of double track with an embankment in the foreground and a cutting with an overbridge in the background. The first part of the train is carrying coal.

HR 80 was a member of the Highland Railway's class of 4-6-0 locomotives known as the 'Superheated Goods'. These were essentially an updated version of the famous 'Big Goods' class of 1894. It was built by Hawthorn Leslie in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1919. After the grouping it became LMS 17955 and continued in service until being withdrawn in June 1952.
