The Highland Railway Jones Goods Class was a class of steam locomotives designed & built by David Jones in 1894. They are the first class of 4-6-0 wheel arrangement in the British Isles. Fifteen were built, and one has survived into preservation. Originally known as the “Big Jones Class”, they became the “Class I” under Peter Drummond. Built at Sharp, Steward & Co between September & November 1894 for use as the principle goods locomotives on the HR network and were the most powerful locomotives on the main line in the country. They would also called upon for passenger duties during the busy summer seasons on the HR network.
All passed into LMSR ownership in 1923 and was number 17916-17930 and given power classification ‘4F’ were work changed little for them until being displaced by the LMS Stanier Class 5s. They were all withdrawn between 1929 & 1940.
One Jones Goods has survived into preservation, having been set aside by the LMS in 1934. It was stored at St. Rollox works until being restored to working order by British Railways in 1959 and spent several years operating rail tours. During this time, it appeared in the 1965 film “Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines”. It was finally retired in 1966 and is today in the Glasgow Riverside Museum. In addition to being the first every British 4-6-0, it is the only surviving HR locomotive in preservation.
