Caledonian 123

On Good Friday in 1963 Caledonian Single 123 worked a railtour from Glasgow to Callander and Killin for I think the RCTS. On the return a very heavy snowstorm was encountered in that area causing a fair bit of late running. Amongst others we stuck it out and photographed her at a snow free but very cold Clydebank East where water was taken.

This 4-2-2 locomotive was a one-off Drummond design, built in 1886 for the Edinburgh International Exhibition and now (2012) resident in the Glasgow Riverside Museum.
It was specially ordered from Neilson & Co of Glasgow on January 23, 1886 and was built at great speed for the opening of the Exhibition on the following April 1.
