Old Photograph Steam Train Glen Murran Dundee Scotland

Old photograph of the The NBR K class steam train Number 62485 Glen Murran in the railway station in Dundee, Scotland. The first batch of the locomotives were designed by Matthew Holmes in 1902 for express passenger work. Three more batches were designed by William P. Reid for mixed traffic work. This included perishable goods, such as fish from Mallaig and Aberdeen. On 28 December 1906, locomotive No. 324 was hauling an express passenger train that was in a rear-end collision with a passenger train at Elliot Junction, Forfarshire. Twenty two people were killed and eight were injured.
