Locomotives of the Highland Railway

£6.99

Available in Stock

The 1923 revision of the railways in Britain saw the end of dozens of companies around the country as many famous names were absorbed into the 'Big Four'. The Britain's Pre-Grouping Railways series surveys some of the best known operators of the era, focusing on the locomotives in operation and the engineers responsible for acquiring, designing and building them.

Formed by merger in 1865, the Highland Railway inherited several locomotives from its constituent companies but later acquired a reputation for a distinctive stable of its own, mostly built at its Lochgorm works in Inverness. This collection of over 150 photographs and postcards charts the company's locomotives throughout the HR years as well as in later operation in LMS colours.
