An unidentified ex-HR 'Superheated Goods' class loco leaving Kyle on a freight train

An unidentified ex-Highland Railway 'Superheated Goods' class locomotive, LMS 1795?, leaving Kyle on a freight train.

In 1918 the Highland Railway took delivery of four 4-6-0 tender locomotives. These were essentially an updated version of the Jones 'Big Goods' class of 1894. A further batch of four was delivered the following year. All were built by Hawthorn Leslie in Newcastle upon Tyne. Numbered 75 to 82, they were known collectively as the 'Superheated Goods'. All but two of the class lasted into British Rail days.
