This loco was originally built 1962 by BRCW as D5394, being converted in Glasgow works during early 1970s fitted with dual brakes and push/pull working equipment in the 27/1 sub-class. It was restored along with others of its Class to normal working condition in November 1982 as 27050. Withdrawn in July 1987, on 23 December 1987 it passed into preservation as an early Christmas present for the Strathspey Railway!

Here 27106 pilots a failed 47403 on a much delayed Aberdeen - Glasgow service at Perth General.
