An unidentified ex-HR 'Big Goods' class loco on a freight train at Perth

An unidentified ex-Highland Railway 'Big Goods' class loco on a freight train at Perth. There are several cattle wagons on the tracks beyond.

When the Highland Railway introduced the first of the David Jones-designed 'Big Goods' class in 1894 they were the first locomotives in Britain to have a 4-6-0 wheel arrangement and were also the most powerful mainline engines working in the country. A total of 15 were built by Sharp Stewart & Co. in Glasgow (numbered 103 to 117) and all passed into LMS ownership in 1923.
