Maid Marian is 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotive built by Hunslet of Leeds in 1903. Until 1964 she worked slate trucks in the famous Dinorwic slate quarries. When these closed the Maid was purchased by a group of enthusiasts and is now based at the Bala Lake Railway where she shares the passenger hauling duties with another Hunslet, Holy War.
The Locomotive has now been fitted with a new boiler and is back in service and running well. This has cost a huge amount so all contributions will be gratefully received! See the progress report for more details.
