An unidentified ex-HR 'Clan' class locomotive on a northbound train at Perth, 1928

An unidentified ex-Highland Railway 'Clan' class locomotive on a northbound train at Perth in 1928.

The last class of locomotive built for the Highland Railway was the 'Clan' class of 4-6-0 passenger engines. Designed by Christopher Cumming, the first four (numbered 49, 51, 52 & 53) were delivered in 1919 and four more (numbered 54 to 57) were delivered in 1921. Built by Hawthorn Leslie & Co. in Newcastle, all members of the class survived into LMS ownership but only one was still working after the formation of British Railways (ex-HR 55 and LMS 14767 'Clan Mackinnon').
