NBR 633 1900s Perth (NBR) MPD

NBR 633 1900s Perth (NBR) MPD

North British Railway Holmes 'M' (LNER 'D31') class 4-4-0 No. 633. Built at Cowlairs in May 1890, rebuilt at Cowlairs by Reid in September 1918 with slightly larger cylinders & boiler and a side-window cab.

The North British Railway was one of several pre-grouping railways that employed 'Official' photographers. The NER and LB&SCR in England and the CR, HR and NBR in Scotland were particularly prolific in this respect. Fortunately many of their efforts have survived as in this splendid view at the NBR's Perth MPD taken circa 1900.

Restored from an original period 8"x10" print.
