LMS 14759 on a mixed train at Aviemore, September 1929

LMS 14759 on a mixed train at Aviemore in September 1929. The service is the 3.20pm from Perth to Inverness.

14759 was a member of the Highland Railway's 'River' class of 4-6-0 locomotive. It was built in 1915 and would have been numbered HR 73 but it soon became apparent that these locomotives were too heavy for most of the bridges and track on the Highland's network. They were sold to the Caledonian Railway and this locomotive became CR 941. After the grouping the LMS did strengthen the mainline between Perth and Inverness and so the 'Rivers' did see work on Highland rails. 14759 was withdrawn from service in February 1939.
