what a shame that this engine or her sister was not preserved. Would have been great to see it on display at Dornoch, if not working on the Strathspey line.

I have been researching Admiralty railway rolling stock in Scotland, one group of engines which have been illusive are the London Brighton & South Coast Terrier's, I have evidence that at least one of these engines worked on the Dornoch branch before going to the Dalmore Distillery but I haven't been able to located any photos of this/these engines on the Dornoch branch.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
