Old Photograph Steam Train Lord Glenvarloch Railway Station Haymarket Edinburgh Scotland


Old photograph of the NBR J Class steam train Lord Glenvarloch in the railway station at Haymarket in Edinburgh, Scotland. The NBR J Class, commonly known as the Scott class, were a class of 4-4-0 steam tender locomotives designed by William P. Reid for the North British Railway. They passed to the London and North Eastern Railway at the grouping in 1923. Six locomotives were built in 1909 by the North British Locomotive Company and a further ten were built in 1911 by the North British Railways. On 3 January 1917, locomotive No. 421 Jingling Geordie overran signals and was in a head-on collision with an express passenger train at Ratho, Lothian. Twelve people were killed and 44 were seriously injured. Irregular operating procedures were a major contributory factor in the accident. These were subsequently stopped.
