NBR 354 1880s Dundee
North British Railway (ex-Edinburgh & Glasgow Railway) 'E417' class 2-4-0 No. 354. Built at Cowlairs in 1862, transferred to NBR stock in 1865. Withdrawal date unknown.
The North British Railway's early locomotives have been well-served by photographers of the Victorian era. This is 354 at Dundee probably in the 1880s. The difficulty for latter-day enthusiasts is in researching their lineage to find their designers, building and withdrawal dates. Let's just be thankful we can see these mechanical gems and not get too bogged down in the minutiae!
