North British Railway C Class No.673 Maude

NBR 673 was built by Neilson & Co. of Glasgow in 1891. After War Service on the Western Front during the First World War, it was named "Maude" after Lt. Gen. Maude, Commander of the British Forces in Mesopotamia. It was based at Haymarket and Bathgate before purchase by the SRPS in 1966.

During the 1980s NBR673 travelled widely on the main line, operating SRPS Railtours, the 1984 Mallaig Steam Specials and, most notably, a round trip from Falkirk under its own power to the Rainhill 150 Celebrations in 1980. A major overhaul was completed in 1992, since when No. 673 has been in regular use on the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway.
