LMS 16118 'Dornoch' on train at Dingwall, July 1926

LMS 16118 'Dornoch' on train in the bay at Dingwall in July 1926. The service is the 2.20pm to Strathpeffer.

16118 (formerly HR 56) was one of three 0-6-0 saddletanks built at the Highland Railway's own Lochgorm works in Inverness. Collectively, these locomotives are often referred to as 'Lochgorm Tanks'. 16118 was built in April 1869 and rebuilt in 1896. Originally named 'Balnain', it was renamed 'Dornoch' in 1902 when it became the locomotive to work on the Dornoch Light Railway.

In the last years of its life it underwent several changes of number: to 56A in July 1919, back to 56 in September 1919, to 56A again in July 1921 and 56B in May 1922.
