Apparently fitted with snowploughs shortly after transfer to Inverness in 1975, the only 26/0 to be so fitted..
26018 was also unusual in the 26/0 series in having the multi jumper attachment on the loco body on number 1 end (as opposed to the buffer beam for other 26/0s); however, number 2 end was standard with the multi on the buffer beam. It also had the horn baffle plate fitted, which not all the IS 26/0s had.
26018 caught fire while working an Edinburgh to Dundee service in November 1981.
Original green; green plus small yellow warning panel; Class 24-style early BR blue; BR blue
