NBR 50A 1870s Location unknown

North British Railway R. & W. Hawthorn designed 0-6-0 No. 50A. Built by R. & W. Hawthorn of Newcastle in 1848 and seen here as rebuilt at St. Margaret's in 1869. It was further rebuilt at Cowlairs in 1882 and withdrawn in February 1909 as NBR No. 1030.

This locomotive was built for heavy goods haulage on the NBR's Hawick route. It must have been well regarded to have been rebuilt twice and given over 60 years of service. Restored from an original period 8"x10" print.
