Brilliant looking to build a model based on Dornoch and such photos are invaluable

What an evocative photograph

Date is probably 1949 to 1951 as the locomotive carries 'BRITISH RAILWAYS' on its tank side. Before BR introduced logos.

Many thanks for your comment regarding the date which relates to the shown image of engine 55051 and will include the other image of 55051 mentioned above. The inaccuracy of date arises from the postcard described above which shows the first passenger train in 1902 but currently cannot be viewed. I will amend the date to 1950 as it is correct for the image shown - Administrator
