Highlands Train

I fear that Slater and Basch have led you to a horrible misstatement. The engine described as a 4-6-0 Great Western Railway locomotive has all the appearance of being a Stanier Black Five of the old London Midland & Scottish Railway. That's like confusing the Pennsylvania Railroad K4 Pacific with the New York Central J3c Hudson. I am sure that those who invest will see quite clearly from the promoters' literature the type of machine involved, but please be careful. The Indian Mutiny was initiated by just such an apparently innocent, trivial mistake.
