Highland Railway Locomotive No. 103
Not the best quality, I'm afraid, photographed in poor lighting on 21 July 2008 (I should have had my tripd with me!). In the Glasgow Transport Museum.
This David Jones design was the first 4-6-0 built for service in Britain, and No. 103 was the first of a series of 15. These were also the most powerful locomotives in Britain at the time, mainly due to their high (for the period) boiler pressure.
No. 103 was set aside for preservation in 1934 and is in the old Highland Railway yellow livery, principally used between 1865 and 1885.
Built by Sharp, Stewart & Co. Ltd of Atlas Works, Glasgow in 1894.
Weights: Locomotive 56 tons, tender 38.3 tons.
Boiler pressure: 175 psi, 2 cylinders, 20 in. diameter x 26 in. stroke. Coupled wheels: 5 ft. 3 in.
