    1854 · Great North of Scotland Railway
    Age 3
    Being one of the two smallest railways in 1923, the Great North of Scotland Railway carried its first passengers from Kittybrewster to Huntly in 1854. In the 1880s the railways were refurbished to give express services to the suburban parts in Aberdeen. There were junctions with the Highland Railway established to help connect Aberdeenshire, Banffshire and Moray counties. The railway started to deliver goods from the North Sean and from the whisky distilleries in Speyside. With the implementation of bus services and the purchase of the British Railway the Great North of Scotland Railway was discontinued.

    Name Meaning

    English (Norfolk and Suffolk): from the Middle English personal name Hogge, a rhyming pet form of Roger . In The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer's cook, ‘highte Hogge of Ware’, is invoked ‘Now tell on, Roger …’. Since Middle English spellings of the personal name are often impossible to distinguish from the nickname Hog(ge) ‘hog’, some early examples may be variants of Hogg .
