Linda is the main steam workhorse of the railway, having provided many years of reliable service. Left to the club by the family of the late builder, she is based on one of the Hunslet ‘Penrhyn sisters’ residing at the Ffestiniog railway in North Wales with sister engine Blanche. Our "Linda" is modelled as the loco appeared in 1962 on delivery to the Ffestiniog railway after service on the Penrhyn Quarry Railway. The real Linda was rebuilt as a 2-4-0 a few years later.
