Steam Locomotives

Steam Locomotives

The Bala Lake Railway aims to run steam trains on each day of timetabled operation.

Five of the steam locos currently at Llanuwchllyn were built by the Hunslet Engine Co. of Leeds, England. Each of the Hunslet locomotives are 0-4-0 ST (saddle tanks) and were all made for the extensive 2ft narrow gauge systems that operated in both the Dinorwic and the Penrhyn Slate Quarries in North Wales.

The sixth member of our steam fleet (currently out of service), is an 0-6-0ST built by Peckett of Bristol, England.
