Rapido 914001 HR ‘Jones Goods’ Highland Railway Yellow (1960’s condition)

The first 4-6-0 locomotive to run in Britain had 20in by 26in cylinders, 5ft 3 1/2in diameter driving wheels and a tractive effort of 24,362lbs. The Highland Railway board authorised construction in January 1894 and Sharp Stewart of Glasgow delivered all 15 locomotives by the end of the year.

Nos. 103-117 were put to work between Perth and Inverness and, aside from some minor tweaks to the draughting arrangement, were an instant success. As the Highland expanded and modified its network, the locomotives began to run north of Inverness and out to Kyle of Lochalsh as well as on the new Aviemore Direct line. Supplying the Royal Navy, based at Scapa Flow, during the First World War taxed the ‘Big Goods’ to the limit but the locomotives continued to prove their worth well into the LMS era.
