LMS 13105 leading 14757 on train near Killiecrankie, July 1931

LMS 13105 leading 14757 on the viaduct near Killiecrankie in July 1931. The service is a northbound passenger train.



13105 was a Hughes Crab (or Horwich Mogul) 2-6-0 steam locomotive. These were designed by George Hughes and 245 were built for the LMS at their works at Horwich and Crewe between 1926 and 1932.



14757 was a member of the Highland Railway's 'River' class of 4-6-0 locomotive. It was built in 1915 and numbered HR 71. It soon became apparent that these locomotives were too heavy for most of the bridges and track on the Highland's network and they were sold to the Caledonian Railway. This locomotive became CR 939. After the grouping the LMS did strengthen the mainline between Perth and Inverness and so the 'Rivers' did see work on Highland rails. 14757 was withdrawn from service in December 1936.
