Old Photograph LNER Class Y9 Steam Train Dundee Scotland

Old photograph of the London and North Eastern Railway Class Y9 68123 steam train in the railway station in Dundee, Scotland. The basic industrial shunting locomotive design was originated by Neilson and Company of Hyde Park Works, Springburn, Glasgow, who built the first examples of the type, mainly for industrial customers, in the 1870s. In 1876 the Caledonian Railway bought four locomotives of this design from Neilsons. Between 1885 and 1908, the Caledonian Railway built thirty four more examples at the company's own St. Rollox railway works in Glasgow. In much the same way, the North British Railway bought two locomotives from Neilson in 1882, and by 1899 they had built thirty six for themselves at their Cowlairs railway works in Glasgow, giving a total of thirty eight engines in service.
